Hahaha, Tiki what does that make? An extremely long scarf? xD

Just because I don't type with candy and rainbows doesn't mean I'm being mean.

The world's longest chain stitch! If you ever turn and start another row you could have the world's longest afghan or scarf.

I hope you guys don't mind, thought I'd share some of my larger pieces, at least those I can find pictures of.


I did her when I was a teenager, have no idea exactly when


This piece is called Fragile, still haven't found the right spot on my walls (please ignore the furballs in the back ground, they are impossible).



This one if Forget-Me-Not, still working on her, have been for about three years now. Should I ever finish her, it will be in the 18x30 " area.

This is just a simple one, done on dyed linen.


My very first HAED design, took me about 6-8 weeks. I still use this as an actual book mark.


Should make one with bettas.... but it wouldn't work there either.


My first large attempt, came out lovely, needed help with the french knots sadly >.> The one thing I cannot do.


Can you tell I love dragons? Don't care if it is supposed to be a book mark! it's too pretty

Err. shoulda warned you about the pic spam!

I've got no less than 7 projects that I've started, only actively working on one, and it's not so active these past few weeks. Thanks for the kind words, I always love hearing that ^.^

Those are gorgeous, I love the geisha one. You are great at this! I never could manage all the different threads properly, got them so tangled up. I'm hopelessly uncoordinated, that's why I use self-striping yarn.

I have nightmares of the floss boxes filled with bobbins. And the hours it takes to wind them! Haha... I'm super organized with that at least >.>

Bobbins everywhere! I do kumihimo braiding as well so I do use floss and I use some cheapo plastic thing to wind them. Still takes forever. You really do a great job on those cross-stitches, they're so beautiful. And I can't wait to see one of your projects, DQ.
