Well as planned, my friend & I started stitching Heaven and Earth Designs Wicca today (technically yesterday since it's now 2:20am on the 20th). I didn't get as much as I wanted to get done for the first day. I got a late start (my kids actually let me sleep in YAY!), and then there other things that I had to take care of. I also took time to go to Kinkos to get enlarged copies of the pattern. I started stitching it from the regular sized printout and I decided it would just be easier to enlarge the pattern. So I started stitching the design in the bottom center of the pattern. And here is my progress so far!
There is a lot of black in this pattern. And I was very surprised to see how many colors are in this pattern. It's funny though, there are 2 colors that have only 1 stitch in the entire pattern. And a few other colors that have 12 or less stitches in the entire pattern. I am so excited to have started this piece. And I can't wait to watch it come alive as I stitch it. Of course my progress so far doesn't look like anything yet. But eventually it will. I have no idea how long it will take me to stitch this piece as I've never stitched a pattern of this size before. And I am sure I will have days when I'm not able to stitch anything on it at all and others where I make a lot of progress. My family & I are going on vacation in mid March, and I already know I won't be taking it with me. I will take small patterns to work on while I am on that trip.
So that's it for now, my 1st days progress on HAED Wicca!!!
Until Next Time,
