The Angel and the slow stitcher

Two more old movies later and the first stitches are in. Yeah, last night it was "From Dusk till Dawn" and "Aliens". I am so excited, proud, pumped . . . I just can't explain it. This is definitely a good hobby to have. :) Even without finishing anything, I have a real feeling of accomplishment.

Unfortunately my few stitches (I have discovered that I am a slow stitcher) doesn't show up nicely on a photo, so I am including the pattern in the picture so that you can see by the pink highlighter how far I came. In defense of the few stitches, I have to admit that I had two false starts and had to do a bit of "frogging".

  1. I've never been able to stitch by gridding. I would still be afraid I was off somewhere! Good luck to you. Hope you can get through the background fast and get to the *good* parts!

  2. I must say, that I am finding the grid helps a lot as I dont have to constently count where I am. I am still in the background but I am thinking of just leaving it for a bit now. :)

  3. I'm very distracted so griding is perfect for me, I can work faster (though I am a slow stitcher too).

    The pattern is beautiful. Just enjoy your stitches, is not a speed contest :o)



Thank you for saying hello.
