I'm happy - I have finished the third page of Christmas Dreams, and made a start on the fourth - which will take me to the middle of the first row of charts (because I am stitching sideways, there are 6 pages of chart across, and 11 pages down).
Christmas Dreams (HAED, Gelsinger/Sayetta)
I was never used to marking off stitched symbols until I started stitching HAED charts. Through trial and error, and much frustration stitching my first HAED, I found it suited me best to mark off the stitched symbols using a lead pencil. Unfortunately, I kept losing the pencils and was spending valuable stitching time trying to fins them or to replace them. Then I came up with the idea of taping a pencil-holder to my floor-frame. It worked so well I found another container to use for my scissors. Winner!
