HAED QS Rose Dreaming – First WIP Picture

Well I’ve started my first HAED (Heaven and Earth designs), QS Rose Dreaming by Brigid Ashwood. I started from the top left corner since I had sort of gridded it and have been working it by colour in that section.

I’ve decided to do the design in both tent stitch and full crosses, the background, which is what I’m currently stitching, is being stitched in tent stitch, 2 over 1. And the figure is being stitched in full crosses 1 over 1.

I’m stitching on 25-count white Lugana, which is my first experience with evenweave. So far I’m loving it, the fabric is nice and soft, and the stitches look so small and delicate.

My only problem came when I wasn’t paying enough attention and ended up using the wrong thread colour with the wrong symbol. I finished stitching the colour in that section before I realized what I had done. In fact, I made a mistake while stitching the colour, frogged it and restitched and then had to frog again because of my stupid mistake.

Hopefully tomorrow will be a frogless day, but until then here is a picture of today’s progress.


Can you guess what I want NOW? Yup, death to ALL frogs
