Recently I started a new HAED project. This is Life Force. This picture was taken last weekend and I already have made significant more progress on it since then! In fact, I am almost done with page 1, off the top of my head I believe that there are over 30 pages in this pattern. 90 different colors. This time around I am putting grid lines on the fabric. This is really helping me with the confetti stitching. Typically I just wing it. But the grid lines are making it go so much faster!
Here is what the final product will look like:
Here is Dragon Knot 2 in all its glory! Finally back from the LNS all framed and matted. I think it came out great. I currently have it hanging in my bedroom till my friend comes to visit in October to claim it in person!
It was a long road to getting this project finished and framed.
I've also been working on some other projects that I have not yet taken pictures of. My friends and I have been delving into the world of mesh wreaths. I will upload our creations for my next post. I've also been busy getting all of my stash in order.
Life has just been really busy these days!

Friday night I wen to see the Brothers of the Sun Tour in New Orleans at the Super Dome. It was fantastic! The line up included Jake Owen, Grace Potter, Tm McGraw and Kenny Chesney. All of them were great, except Grace Potter, in my opinion. She just didn't fit in with the rest of the line up. We were initially leary of seeing Tim McGraw again because we saw him last year at the Bayou Country Superfest and he was rather, dull and boring. Ok, we will admit, it might have been us who were suffering from heat stroke by the time he came on, but we were in definite agreement, he was awesome this time around! He had a much better song selection! Kenny Chesney is like the freaking Energizer Bunny! He is all over the place. It is amazing that he can run around like that on the stage AND sing live at the same time.
