Go Big or ……

I have always been a sucker for a stitching challenge and really like the stitch-a-long concept.  I have some Heaven and Earth Designs (HAED) projects that I was hoping to start after the holidays.  Well…. thanks to Facebook, I was compelled — almost forced — to start not one but two new HAED projects.

This is the first — Catching The Breeze by Jane Wooster Scott.

This is the largest piece I ever started with a design size of 625 by 469.  The total number of stitches is 293,125.  I am stitching on 22 count antique tan hardanger, one over one.

This is my start with just over 100 stitches in place….
