New start piccies

As promised, stitching pictures! Here's the first page of my new HAED - Shakaasha by Linda Tso. Just a blue blob right now but a pretty blue blob! (1 over 1 on 25ct evenweave)

And here's the start of Pompeii Garden. It doesn't look too exciting yet cos all that centre bit needs to be filled with beads! I've done a few and maybe I'll do the rest today. It's going to be a tight squeeze on hand-dyed 32ct (Pipi from Countrystitch) but I didn't want to drop down to 28ct.

  11. Love both of your starts. I have a question for you about parking threads on your HAED. I understand the concept but when you are working with so many different shades of blue how do you know which blue your working with when you move into your next 10 stitch square? Does that make sense?
