At long last I am ready to actually join in with Our Friends' HAED SAL. As I am going away for a long weekend this week I stitched a day early just to put a few stitches on the fabric so just a quick post for now to add a pic to show I have actually started! Having never done a HAED before or even used any fabric other than aida this is quite a major project for me. I have only recently discovered there are 99,900 stitches! I am stitching on 25 count evenweave and after a quick practice I have decided to use two strands of thread and just a half stitch (?) as I found a full cross stitch looked too bulky.
I am really enjoying seeing the progress everyone is making and hope to get to know some of you very soon.
Thanks to Wendy and Cindy for their invitation and patience (I'm totally useless at blogging !)
