I decided to start with one of my smallest HAED to work on ( 20 pages) so I don't feel overwhelmed with the size of the HAED. I have two other HAEDs which consist of 49 pages. This is "Bast Cat" designed by Michele Sayetta.
This is stitched on 18 ct, 2 over one, with DMC threads. This is where I am at right now. I just started this morning. I am going to set a goal to stitch at least 10 square block a day.
