My name is Carolyn & I'm married with three grown children, mostly. DD married in Sept., DS is marrying in 3 weeks, and DD is in college. So what did we do with all of our free time since the kids were gone? Went out and got another baby - puppy, that is, so I'm back to caring for a child, more or less...haha
However, it is cutting into my stitching time, believe it or not, and what do I do? Go buy a HAED! And it's all your faults. :) JK
I've been admiring everyone's HAED stitching so much, I was dying to join in the fun (as if I have no other stitching...LOL) But enough kidding, I would love some suggestions from you all, since many of you are more experienced with HAEDs and this is my first. Mine is Secret Garden 3 - it's the colors that got me...
I may cheat on this one and stitch it on 25 ct. black lugana, but I'm a little cautious with this, having stitched on dark fabrics before - however, not quite this size. So here's my question. I'm not exactly thrilled with stitching nothing but black, but will black fabric be such a pain to stitch that I'll hate I ever started it? I plan on gridding it and marking each page. Also, because the fabric is black, will the colors come up well with two strands? Or should I just deal with it, stitch it on white/off-white and and get on with it? Thanks for your help. :)
