This Month's Blog of the Month is one of my personal favourites. It is called Our Haed Sal Blog. This is a very eloquent blog that provides a hundred members to show their work of one of our favourite designers, which is Heaven and Earth Designs. I have asked both the Creators, Cindy and Wendy, some questions on why they felt their blog is such a success to all stitchers and all who visit.
The first question I asked both Cindy and Wendy was; What made you both decide to create this blog?
Cindy Said 'I loved how Michele and Bob transform beautiful artwork into Cross Stitch Designs. It is like painting a picture but with thread.
Wendy Said 'I love the designs of HAED, it is like paintings. The reason for this blog is to encourage everyone to finish these nice pieces of art so they won't become an UFO.'
For those of you who don't know a UFO stands for UnFinished Object.
The next question I asked Cindy and Wendy was; Did you expect your community to get such a successful response?
Wendy Said 'We (Cindy and I), never thought it would become so successful, but it is fun. Especially we get to make and have new friendships and share our love of crafting. Also had some nice support from Michele of HAED and offered to do the first Giveaway. '
Cindy Said 'Michele of HAED wrote us with incredible support, even posting about our blog on her board and being generous as Michele and Bob are offered the first giveaway.'
In order to be a part of the giveaway you do have to be part of the community.
The third question I asked the ladies was; Would there be anything you could change about the blog?
Cindy said 'Have more members."
Wendy also agreed with Cindy on having more members. They would like more space for more members.
So if any of you talented webpage designers could think of a way to help these ladies out that would be great.
Forth question that was asked is; Do you have any tips for new bloggers out there?
Both Cindy and Wendy agreed to this 'If you have a specific forum, stick pretty close to it. But also be open to suggestions.'
Fifth question that was asked is; What tips do you have for new HAED stitchers?
Cindy said 'Do not get overwhelmed by the size of the number of pages. Just enjoy the process'
Wendy said 'It is a hobby so enjoy it and don't make a race of it. Every stitch that you do no matter how small is progress'
The final question I asked was; What was your first HAED Patterns that drew you to the HAED website?
For Cindy it was the Christmas Designs nad the amazing details and colours.
For Wendy it was the pattern that she saw Cindy stitch. She wanted to sart one also. Her first pattern is The Land of Enchantment by Scott Gustafson. Wendy would love to stitch a lot more of the HAED Designs.
Thank you ladies so much for answering my questions. If any of you ae wanting to join the list or would like to design these two terrific ladies a webpage with a blog for everyone to share their work feel free to email either Cindy or Wendy at firstname.lastname@example.org; or email@example.com Also just to let you all know that there is a waiting list to be a part of this blog.
