After spending night after night after night drooling over all my choices, my husband helped me decide on Cathedral by Jonathon Earl Bowser
Here's an image of what we chose:
While I'm working on my Angel of Hope, I'll be getting my fabric ready with grid-lines for this project. I also need to sort through all my threads and get them cut and labeled.
I'm also considering starting a smaller HAED project just after starting this. I've never had more than one major WIP at a time, but I know this one will be a long journey so I'd like to work on other pieces along the way as well.
11/08/2011 - Finally have all my floss!! It took some time because there were some colors I couldn't find anywhere.
|Does this look like over 100 skeins of floss?|
I've only gridded 2 border lines.....this thing is huge!
|I have it clipped from the top of a closet door, that's how gigantic this thing is!|
12/26/2011 - First few pages are gridded and the floss is cut and ready to go! Can't decide if I should be patient and grid the entire piece out or just dive in and start stitching!
