Sorry about the picture, don't know why it is sideways, but that sums things up on how things are going. Most people worry about finishing a HAED -- Heck, I haven't been able to start mine, but the third time proved to be a charm; I had all my colors, and my fabric, but had to wait one month to get my chart. Then I found out that I absolutely hate 22 count hardanger, so found some 25 count fabric, cut it and started to stitch; I just can't get the knack of one over one, and I was frogging 3 stitches for every 1 stitch I did -- I know that doesn't seem possible, but I am sure that is what happened. So I ordered new 28 count fabric in a size to stitch 2 over 2; the fabric arrived Friday evening, and I started stitching yesterday. I laugh at the post about getting tired of purple -- know the feeling as mine is all black (except for 11 stitches) so far. It is certainly a larger size that I wanted but since it is (only?) 300 x 223, it is not unmanageable.
