HAED Jolly Old Fellow

I have now finished page 3 of Jolly Old Fellow. I've gridded up the fabric for page 4, as a trial - I've never gridded before, but I did have a few little hair-tearing episodes on page 3, trying to find my place. I'm hoping the grid will help me with that on page 4.

It looks so great already!! Hope the gridding thing will work for you. Maybe I should try this too on my next page.

Yay Elfie... he looks wonderful! Those blues are just gorgeous against that red.

I can't believe how fast you moving on this even with all that frogging you did. I really hope you like the grid, it is just so helpful for me that I can't understand why everybody doesn't do it.

I hope that you find the gridding as helpful as I have. It has saved me from frogging SO many times. More than I want to admit! lol

Not only all of those shadings of blue, but the shadows of red, and most certainly the whites must be a challenge! But you are doing SO well!
It is looking beautiful!

You work so fast Elfie, I'm truly impress! And the colors are so beautiful!
I think that Santa will be there for Christmas :)

Santa is really starting to take shape! I have only gridded once, and I only gridded whole pages, but I can see how it would really be useful if stitch cross-country.
