    That is absolutely fantastic. I’ve done one HAED (I think….I had the chart for 10 or 15 years, so I forgot where it came from, and there were no identifying marks), and I have one I’m gathering floss for.They’re a massive commitment, but so worth it.

      Oh aren’t they just. I’d like to get my Gemini on complete really. Just having the time.

        I’m a little nervous about the one I have in line now. It’s a mini, and I’ve seen a lot of dissatisfaction on here with how those come out. I can’t do the full-sized one, though; I’d need an extender bar for my frame, and the company that made it is out of business.

          I’ve seen a couple of the mini version and I believe it’s confetti heavy but the standard one has it’s fair share of it. I use EzPDF reader on my iPad that helped me with the search feature. I’d never have completed it doing with highlighter and paper

            Confetti doesn’t bother me (and I do everything on paper), but I’ve seen several posts on here about how much detail is lost in the minis. I don’t want to get halfway through and discover that it’s going to come out looking like a big, sad blur.

            Have you seen Libbeths mini Witching Hour. On Instagram

            Nope, my entire “social media presence” (bleh) is here. Unless you count LibraryThing. πŸ™‚

            Okay. πŸ™‚ I wish I could remember who it was in the past couple of months who was doing one of the minis (the train one, if I recall correctly) and posted photos to show why she was abandoning it. She was disappointed, and I was disappointed in sympathy. That was the second or third person I’d seen say something about them, too.

            I have to agree. That’s why I decided to do the standard one. I’ve found the minis to be pixelated. I know it takes longer but it’s worth it. Witching Hour doesn’t look to bad but I still prefer the bigger one.
