Hi all. I want to thank everyone for sending me the helpful links on over one stitching. I'm glad I mentioned the problem, otherwise, I would not have known there is a solution. But thanks to all of you, I won't be having a problem with slipping stitches! Again, I appreciate your help and guidance.
No big projects yet....still favoring Lucy Redd....Mary Oldfield? Decided to play with this tiny (4x6) one from Hinzeit.
There are 12 colors in this small sampler! Should be pretty nice, maybe become a note pad cover or a small booklet of some sort. Maybe not. But it'll be quick, that's for sure. I really don't know which linen I'm using, but it's stiff. Really stiff. That's OK with me because I don't like the soft linens, especially on the lower counts. Since most of my samplers were Scarlet Letter's, I used her linen or one similar and never thought to keep a record. Now, I will keep a small swatch and note the name, color, and count so I don't have to continue this guesswork.
My large old stainless fry pans are filled with water for the birds and critters, minus the handles. Very easy to clean. And here's what makes the flowers do fabulous...
This is where I quit on the outside projects.
That's it. Sorry. Some times a girl just has to ramble. Girl? WHAT?? Too much chocolate? Or coffee? Whatever - too much other stuff and not enough stitching!! Have a great weekend everyone - thanks for reading - happy stitching!
