Well I'll try and post a second time because the last time I tried to post this it got deleted argh !!!!!!
Edited : tenth time I've tried to post, is anyone having any blogger app for ipad/phone problems ?
I've made a start on HAED Freebie Trick or Treat page one. This has been a big learning experience me as it is the first time I have stitched over one on 25 count on something so large. I wanted to do it as I have a larger HAED I want to do on the same count so I wanted to practise on this first. I thought stitching with small holes would be the main issue but that is not a problem for me and my tension seems to be ok. The main issue for me is HOW I am stitching. After researching, I decided to do each stitch as I go to avoid thread slippage. At first this seemed to being going very slow and I almost gave up with it, but I do seem to being going a bit faster and getting near to my average of about 100 stitches between 1 and 2 hours depending on how confetti mad it is. The other issue I am having is a minor one but just something I noticed ... my back is terrible. I don't normally bother a great deal about my back but there is so much extra thread on there than there usually is. I love how it is going though, the detail, even just in the blues of the sky is looking brilliant and I am not far away from the beginning of the moon in the bottom right hand corner and a bat !!!!!!
Here is the fabric and floss (fabric from The Crafty Kitten, of course !!!!!!)
