Shoot the Moon - Darlene Hamelin


My name is Darlene and I am attempting my first HAED design, Shoot the Moon by Michele Sayetta.  I am stitching on 25 count Lugana, over one stitch using one strand of floss.  So far I am pleased with my progress and have learn allot about stitching such an complex pattern.   I have been stitching for over twenty years and still enjoy finding challenging patterns.  I have recently had back surgery and have found myself with lots of time to sit and stitch.  I have learn a couple of things about stitch HAED design and I am already searching for my next project.  Question has anyone use two strands of floss on 25 count over one?



Here is my progress so far!!!!!

Hi, yes I stitch 2 over 1 on lugana and really like the effect. Sometimes with confetti stitching it's a little harder. I cross-country stitch too. Your stitching looks really good! :)

Hi! Lovely work so far.
I stitch 2 over 1 on Dublin (linen) which I love. Have to say my one attempt at 2 over 1 on Lugana is not so successful, but I will persevere. I guess I'm weird - 1 thread on Lugana, 2 on Dublin! Enjoy the crazy world of HAED.
