Ok, I've got a "bump" in my rotation. On the HAED FB page, there is a challenge that runs from 1April 2016 - 15 June 2015. The easiest way to qualify for the challenge was to have a new start (bummer).
The challenge itself is to do a full page (between 7300-7800 stitches) in cross country stitching. Since that's the way I stitch anyway, I thought "Why not?". The specific nature of this challenge is to stitch all of one color on the entire page before switching to another color. Okay, that's taking a bit more thought. I tend to switch colors very frequently. The down side is if I make a mistake on the first color, I'm going to have to frog a bit more than I would normally. I know - I've had to frog twice so far.
Here's my first page with one color completely done:
Oh, for those of you wondering what this will eventually be...tough. Just kidding! It's a retired HAED pattern: Mini Wings in Repose.
