I've done a handful of tiny (and I repeat, tiny) projects but never really went big time. Well, I'm about to. I'm on the verge of starting my very first HAED pattern. And it's James Christensen's The Chess Match. So far, I've got my fabby, my threads and my pattern. I'm just waiting for Christmas to arrive before I get my scroll stand. (YIPPEE! My sis is giving me a kick-a** one as my Christmas gifty).
I've gridded the entire first row of pages, I've hemmed the edges of my 18ct aida and I've wound my skeins of thread. Everything's all ready.
And I'm nervous as hell.

|I love winding bobbins. I find it therapeutic. That, and I'm slightly OC about my cross stitching gear.|
|Did some test patches... top being 2 over 1, 2nd layer is 1 over 1... what do you think I should do? 2 over 1 or 1 over 1?|
