Yes, I know ... do I really need another big and complicated design?

I would say YES because I thought this would be perfect for my parents (although they don't have to expect it soon :-)

I bought the chart yesterday evening ... and I cursed afterwards because HAED was giving a special promotion for the 29th of March = 50% off each and every chart (and I bought it a couple of hours before at the full price)! Oh well ...

So here's the beauty!

El Vaquero by Laurie Prindle

The only thing I need to do now is search for a piece of linnen that is big enough (I prefer to stitch on 32 or 36 count with 2 over 2 - not on the 25 count as is recommended).

Hope you like it (and my parents as well - they don't know, but I'm going to ask them tomorrow evening without revealing it will be for them)!?

It is a beautiful HAED! And i never seen it before.
Yes, it is a lot of work... i have 3 HAEDs to stich...but mostly i want to work on just one: Fairy Bubbles.

Wat een prachtig patroon, wel balen dat het net voor de sale was.
Ik had me voor genomen om degene die ik heb gekocht pas aan het einde van het jaar te kopen met de kerstsale, maar dit was gewoon een te mooi aanbod.

Succes met het zoeken naar de goede stof.
