Introducing myself :)

My name is Gabi, I'm 48 years old, living in Australia, and tackling soon my first HAED. I fell in love with Manhattan Wonderland by Jane Wooster Scott some while ago. I finally purchased it, the fabric is ordered, and soon as it arrives I can start. Even I don't mind stitching over 1, I figured that for such a big piece I rather try to stitch on 22 count Aida with 2 strands. And with the type of painting Manhattan Wonderland is, that should work out fine. (I hope so at least....lol)



I'm admiring all work here, and they all look lovely.

Hey girl!
Love it, love it, love it! As soon as I finish my RR (hopefully tonight), I plan to start gridding my fabric for mine. I have all my threads and fabric lined up and ready to go! Good luck with yours!
