Dragon Lady (from Jacob)

Hello from Afghanistan! Well today was my first day off since leaving the US at the end of October and I started my project. I managed to complete the first 1200 stitches. I don't know if thats alot but I thought it was a good start.

I am stiching this on 25 count evenweave. 1 x 1 with 2 threads. I thought about using only 1, but I like the look of 2 strands. This is the first time for me using anything other than 15 or 18 count aida.

Thank you! I figured this would be a good way to kill 12 boring hours a day :o)

Beautiful start! You are getting excellent coverage. I really like the design and look forward to seeing your next update.

Your stitches look so nice and neat. Very pretty stitching.

Nice start! Do you find that stitching with 1 strand is too sparse? is it any harder to get 2 strands through the holes? I'm about to start my first HAED project, and i was debating between 1 and 2 strands. I will be using 25 count evenweave.
