Still Loving The Hair

I finished page 1 and got a little over 1/3 of page 3 done as well! There are a few unstitched bits where I'm somehow missing a colour. I suspect I cannibalized it for some other project.

25ct Antique White Lugana

I use the dual highlighting method for HAEDs: highlight the symbol you're going to stitch in orange, stitch, highlight again in blue and the stitched bits are now this horrible green colour. Repeat. A few nights ago both my highlighters died in the middle of stitching. And I really didn't feel like changing out of my jammies that late. I've had to switch to yellow and pink which ends up orange; except I can't tell the orange from the pink and the yellow is too neon bright to use alone. I have no excuse for sorrow since I can just go the store, but I haven't quite gotten around to it yet. Maybe I should stock up on more blue and orange highlighters... Do they dry up if kept closed in a dark cool place?

Great progress. She looks beautiful. I use my Samsung tablet so can't help with the highlighter problem. I was always leaving the lids not quite on.

Heather is looking lovely :) I can imagine that dual-highlighting is necessary with HAEDs, LOL, they're really complex! My favourites are the Pilot Spotlighters, they last forever (as long as you close the caps tight) and you can get a really exact line with the chisel tip :)
