Snow Leopard Update:
First, apology to all, but I am encountering some problem when I try to comment on someone's entry; on a rare occasion, I can, but 99% of the time I can't. Maybe someday I will figure out how to blog.
Thanks to all for comments on my dilemma with fabric showing with the black background. I finally decided to frog the 1700 stitches I had done, and I am so glad that I went this direction. I am using three threads (over 2 on 28 count) and I am much more pleased with the appearance.
I now have almost 2,000 stitches done and finally am getting to a new color (not black). I will post a picture in a week or so -- right now it is just a black background.
This is my first HAED, but darn it is really addicting. I keep getting drawn to it, and have greatly reduced the amount of time I am devoting to my other two WIPs, and it is painful to take time away to do things like dishes, dusting, laundry, etc. Just what I didn't need, a new addiction. This is fun (now, remind me I said that six months from now when I am weary of this project).
Keep putting up your progress notes and photos; and if I can ever figure out how to comment, I will; but know I read and enjoy each and every one.
