First photo of my restart: Wizard of Oz

Hi! Here's my first photo of the restart of Wizard of Oz. I can't show you a picture of last week, for the fabric was still empy then. I started a week again all over, because I wasn't happy with the coverage of only 1 thread on 18 count aida. Now I stitch with 2 threads and it's becoming really beautiful. I started in the opposite site, so actually I don't realize that it's the same work again. This is the first page and I stitched four rows, so I'm quite satisfield. There are a lot of coulours, so a lot of confetti-stitches, but I don't mind. I'm glad to be happy during stitching. You might as well see the light blue lines on the fabric. For the first time I gridded my fabric. I used a pen with wasable ink, and gridding took only little time. But it is really working for me, I love it!

Furthermore I read all your progresses with great interest. I really like to see what everybody is doing and it's giving me a lot of inspiration. Keep on the good work, I like us blogging and stitching together!
