I decided to go back to Sadness of an Angel to finish out this page . I hope to have this page done by the end of the week and then I will be going back to Lilith to get the 1st page of it completed. I am pretty excited to see a bit of forehead come out, I think in the next 3 rows left on this page I will get to an eye - well a bit of one anyways. I have yet to decided if I will go with page 2 which has more hair and what looks like it could be an ear or if I will drop down to page 11 which looks like it is mostly background with a bit of nose on it.

This is my progress on Lilith, not as much as I had hoped for. Now I need to decide if I will keep with her until page 1 is finished or switch back to Sadness of an Angel. There is still a fair bit of confetti left to do on this page and it is driving me nuts at how slow it is going.

It is that time of month again - time for IHSW and I am so excited ! This is my before pic of Lilith , as you can see I have been working a bit on her wing. I just love the colors in this, such a change from the gray's of sadness of an Angel. I hope to be able to get this page finished off this weekend.

I am really happy with the progress that I have made on Sadness of an Angel. At the moment I am at almost 4300 stitches. However I have to put her away for a bit as I ran out of a couple colors that I need to work on her. I will go into town sometime next week to pick them up.
I am pulling out QS Lilith to work on until I get some more thread. Maybe I will get lucky and have a page finish in the next week, there are only 2400 stitches until the end of the page :) I will be back in a couple of days with a picture of Lilith.

I was trying to be good during the HEAD sale but this one kinda just jumped into my cart :) The dog in it reminds me so much of our Pit Bull Spike ! I want to do this as a gift for my DH , I just know that he will love it. It is not to large , only 283 x 280. I have the perfect piece of white 22ct to do it on :)

I managed to fill the hole in late last night, I am just amazed at the detail in her hair.When I am stitching on her she just looks like a grey blob but when I set her down and take a step back she looks amazing! I have got the top 4 rows done and I think I want to keep going to get the next 3 rows done (2400 stitches). By the time I get to the bottom of the next 3 rows I will be starting a bit of her face and I am very excited for that.

Here is my first update on Sadness of an Angel by HAED. It was started on 11/2/11 on 22 ct mint green fabric that I bought off of ebay. So far I am 2100 stitches into it, the whole design has 118,000 stitches in total and 24 pages. My goal is to have this completed in 1 1/2 years. I will have to finish a page every month to reach that goal :)
So far I am finding that she is a pretty relaxing stitch, though she does tax my eye's a bit as I normally don't do over 1 on anything smaller then 18ct. I am gonna keep going with her for another 1,000 stitches and then i may take a break to work on something with more colour to it.
