Voodoo in violet | HAED #1

Image
Hello Peeps! As you know, I have been spending this past week stitching away on Voodoo
- To be honest, it was more of making a start and tackling the first of many pages! -
and I have been having a great time slowly (very slowly) seeing it starting to appear on my fabric.

Started on the 14/09/2017 Using DMC magic guide fabric 25 count, white evenweave Stitching 1 over 1, full crosses with DMC
Design size is 400 stitches wide by 557 stitches high
88 colours
Finished design should be measuring
16 inches wide by 22-1/4 inches high
Started on the first page at the top left corner



Trying to zoom a little...



I know it doesn't look like anything at the moment,
but I can honestly say that I am hooked on HAED!!

I am proud of how much I've achieved in a week. There is plenty more to do, I am fully aware of it,
but I am simply having great fun and enjoying stitching one cross at a time!
I will be back soon with what is most likely to be another HAED start ;)

Toodles, Mii
