I've done it. I've finally started my first HAED. My new frame arrived today, I ripped it out of the package as soon as I got home and set it up.
I've chosen to do Moonlit Waters, a Julie Fain design... it's really pretty. It's the first time I've tried 25 count, and I'm stitching on DMC gridded fabric, perhaps it's cheating but given that it's my first one, it just makes life a ton easier. So far I've done almost 400 stitches and it covers this miniscule area of fabric... I think this one is gonna take a while.
Progress and photos to come periodically, I think probably about once a month. Oh, I also need to get some new batteries for the light on my magnifier... I just wish summer would hurry up and get here so I can have nice long daylight hours!
Well, that's all for tonight, it's already past my bedtime.
