This is another one I've wanted to stitch for a long time so I can now cross another one off the list. I'm sure I will get tired of the smaller designs and get back to the bigger pieces soon but for now, this is working out!
So. Someone mentioned something about my smokin' needles last week. Here are my "secrets":
- Smaller designs
- More time because I am not working too much right now
- The biggest "secret"? I'm stitching on 28 count linen! I have been using up smaller pieces of 28 count linens kicking around as I've been stitching with 36 count for awhile now. Now that I'm on these larger counts, I can see & stitch so much better! No kidding! Not sure if this means I'll be giving up on 36 count but my eyes sure are happier!
I'll end this post with an orchid in bloom at present. The shape of it reminds me of the center flower in the piece above.
Thank you for visiting and I really enjoyed all the comments from last week! No surprise that I get the most comments when I have more stitching to show! ;-)
Oh, one last thing, check out this cute video. It will surely put a smile on your face!
Have a wonderful week!
