This is my first post on this site so I hope I get everything correct.
I have just started my first haeds
yes I said haeds how could you pick just one to stitch they are all so gorgeous,
This site has been a part of my daily ritual for the past few months.
I love looking at everybody's wonderful stitching and I am amazed at how fast some people can stitch.
my first adventure is Soul searchers tryptich by linda ravencroft
which I first started on 25 count 2 over 1 but found it to bulky and some how made a hole in my material when I had to frog,
so I restarted 1 over 1 on 25 count and I was stitching in rows of 10 down the page but was unhappy with the lines it was leaving,
so I restarted again and I am extremely happy
Soul searchers tryptich
page 1 finished
2 over 1 on 18 count
dmc magic weave ecru
regular chart format
with dmc threads
I also had to start faerie melody by ruth sanderson
Faerie Melody
here is her progress after 7 days of stitching
I have about 1/2 a page stitched
stitched 1 over 1 on 25 count
dmc magic weave white
regular chart format
with dmc threads
Thanks everybody for sharing you lovely stitching and allowing me to be part of this blog
Happy Stitching Tanya

you are doing great :D, be carefull you dont get page lines left after getting rid of 10x10 lines. what i usually do is look at the next page , to see if i can continue the colour over, and then zigzag down , going a few stitches over onto the next page then i few stitches short (or stoping on the next page when it naturally comes to a different colour, this helps avoid page lines.
