Beck Summer in Bavaria - my first updates


I'm so glad to have started, lol! I had to get a new frame/stand and really like it now that I've gotten brave enough to add the material to it. Then I had to overcome my fear of stitching that first stitch - I didn't know I could count so many times! I am happy to report that I AM off of the first page and onto the second page - this one isn't a full page either but a lot larger than the last one. I like the design even better than I thought I would and am excited to stitch every day.

BIG thanks to Cindy F for helping me set up to post (again) and to all of you for your inspirational pictures. I don't think I have ever enjoyed stitching so much.

Looking forward to posting another progress pic next week...happy stitching everyone!

Bravo, the first page! I love it and especially as before reading your heading and just seeing the picture i thought... "Attack of the stitching shark"... lol (it reminded me of a fin) Well I see that you attacked the chart and really ate it up!

ROFL - it DOES look like a shark, doesn't it? I am happy to say that I'm adding to the fin today - that changing pages is nerve-wracking!
