New Start

There's a good reason for this one, though. I just moved back in with my parents (temporarily). I haven't lived here for 7 years now, so it's going to take some getting used to. As it stands, however, everything is packed up in boxes and I have no idea where anything is. I did have a project set aside here, however, for when I came to visit so I didn't have to lug everything around every trip.

Apparently now, though, it's the only project I can find and reasonably work on. So, until I unearth my box of cross stitch projects (probably, hopefully, tomorrow), I started working on a project my sister got when she wanted to try cross stitching. Then she decided it wasn't for her so I was "asked" (read: it was thrust upon me) to complete the project for her. It's a Dimensions kit called "Riding the Wave" and it basically involves ocean waves crashing down in the shape of horses, since my sister loves horses.

Without further ado, here's the beginning photo:


It's a fairly quick stitch, which is not what I'm used to after stitching HAED, but there it is.

On another note, I think I'm going to give gridding a try. I feel like it will be less frustrating for me in the long run. At this point, however, I'm trying to figure out the best way. My first attempt will be with fishing line. Gridding pens frighten me a little. But if anyone has any helpful tips about their own gridding experiences, please let me know!

Until then, happy stitching!
