I am gridding with Easy-Count Gridline by R&S Designs also previously purchased from 123 Stitch.com. Due to 1.) My impatience 2.) My tendency for error and 3.) My ability to overwhelm myself I have just gridded out the first page of the design and haven’t completed it yet. Its a safe starting point and with this gridline I can easily add or remove as I work.

This project is very overwhelming to me. I have attempted to start it a couple of times with no success. Here is hoping this will come along better. I know if I have a few readers checking in and encouraging me I can do this šŸ™‚ I picked this pattern solely for myself. I love reading and most of what I read is fantasy, paranormal or dystopian. This picture called to me immediately.

For anyone who has completed a HAED project, please give me any and all suggestions as to what worked best for you. This is a new experience for me.

I got one square done. Slow and Steady!

Also if anyone can explain why my pictures keep turning that would be great!
