It has felt so good being in the cave today behind some needle and fabric! I got the first 200 stitches put in my very first HAED…”Fright Night”. I LOVE IT!!
25 ct. Pewter Lugana. I’m doing 2 threads over 1. But man, those are some super teeny tiny little x’s. And my back is not only a super hot mess, it is a HARD mess making it hard to get the needle through sometimes. I’m also still trying to figure out how I want to handle the needles. I’ve got a box with all the threads in it. From there I pull out what is in the boxes I’ll be working on that day and put them in the lamp stand. Today, I used the needle minder and did the whole symbol/number thing on it (for today’s threads only). That makes it quicker to switch through I think, but I’m not sure how it will work in the long run. I’m supposed to be looking through the bottom of the bi-focals to do this, and I actually go back and forth. Either way it’s still tough on the eyes. Any suggestions on how to organize, stitch, etc? All HAED pointers I am fully open to!!
