SEX!!! + Duck Collage - Week 5

Ha!  I thought that title would catch your eye.  For those not in the know SEX stands for Stash Enhancement eXperience.

This week Heaven and Earth Designs had their Valentine's Day Sale.  And I added to my collection of zodiac patterns by Linda Ravenscroft.

In the past I've only purchased charts from HAED when their sales reached 50% off.  But it seems that hasn't happened in quite a while, so I just bit the bullet and purchased two more from the set. Here's what I've got and need so far...

Since I don't have a significant other I got this as a Valentine's gift to myself. 

Now on to Duck Collage progress.....

I have come to the conclusion that even if I worked on this 8 hours a day for the next 3 weeks; I don't think it is going to be finished by the 5th of March.  That and the fact that right now I can only handle stitching about 2 - 4 hours a day until my shoulder gives out.  Anyway here's this weeks progress.

Happy Valentine's Day and thanks for stopping by my blog.

To Dima (D1-D2), Jo, and Angie...  Thanks for commenting on my last post.  For some odd reason the comment notifications didn't get forwarded to me.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who's noticed that the HAED sales are getting less and less! Great progress!

I think I've bought HAED charts once. I never bought more since I'm not sure I'll ever stitch them.

By the way, are you stitching holding your q-snap up with one hand? Consider buying a quick grip spreader clamp (the one I have is by IRWIN). You can use it to clamp your q-snap to a desk/table and be able to stitch with 2 hands.

gosh I would love to have all of those, but trying to be good...but now I have to go look since you were there treating yourself :D

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

The Star Sign designs are lovely and a great idea to treat yourself too.

The duck pattern does seem to be rather large and complicated, more than the cover picture would make you assume.
