Hermit update and a new start!

For this month's Hermit Stitchers update I have a new start.
HAED Story Keep Evil Qeen Maleficent. HAED has now changed the pattern name to Evil Queen to avoid name copyright issues.
This is a really fast stitch with barely any confetti stitches.
 Please ignore the red X through the image. I had troubles with printing directly off the HAED website. I always save the PDF, then print from my account from the HAED website before leaving the site. For some reason, the site intejected a completely different color key and pattern symbols. Weird symbols using funny letters with funny accent "tick" marks above the top of them. Even though the key symbols matched the pattern, it was incorrect and virtually unreadable. I emailed the owner, Michele, and she immediantly emailed another PDF. In return I emailed 3 pictures of the funny looking symbols to show I wasn't going nutty. This was at 8PM HAED time and I was extremely satisfied with their customer service. Curiosity got the better of me and I checked the original download I had saved on my computer. That is a correct PDF. I don't know what happened in translation, but I had to reprint Evil Queen and another pattern frm my HAED bookshelf. Using the original cardstock I marked a red X through the incorrect pages and inadvertantly marked through the front cover. Anywho, here is my new start for next weekends Hercules Hurricane for Disney Lovers FB SAL. I don't know how much I will get done as next weeknd is our Memorial Day holiday and we have guests coming. You know the drill. Spending the week running through the house cleaning every nook and cranny!

Stitchng on light blue 36 count linen, 2x2, full cross stitches. Love the colors is this one, as they are purples and lavenders so far.
Hope you had a productive Hermit weekend!

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

Great new start, love those purples!
Had to laugh at HAED changing the name to avoid copyright issues! The fact that it actually is Maleficient is enough for Disney to sue whatever they call the chart. I thought they were a little bit stricter about only using licensed products?

Nice start. I also wondered about the copyright issues.
