Hello people! My weekend is starting with bad coffee and lots of sunshine. One out of two ain't bad. Hope your odds are better.
Pinkeeps. We all stitch them - do you use them? Are you afraid to stick needles into your beautiful stitching for fear of splitting a linen thread? I use my new one and my little box lid with Nan's design that I did a while back.
Both are 28 count and with the thicker threads being spaced further, I didn't think it would matter.
Bingo! Right on target. If I made it as a pinkeep, I guess this is to be expected. Do you ever stitch a design for this purpose, or do you display as such and not use it? If you've used a 35 count tight weave, your chances of splitting would be greater, right? Just curious.
My progress on Eliza is very slow because I've been very tired after scrubbing screens and windows, plus I'm still throwing things out. Linen closet and clothes closet. You have to know this is hard for a person who is indecisive, but instead of thinking about the item, I toss and don't look back. It's the only way and it's working.
My next color was 351 and I removed the letters after seeing it in place. The brights are growing on me, but this one was like a nerve conduction test. So I decided to use the 351 that I dipped in a speck of gray dye. Pretty isn't it? Some floss took the gray with one quick dip and others, barely a change. This was a quick dipper.
That's all I got! Thank you for stopping by. Welcome to new followers. I appreciate all of you very much! Without you, I don't think I would have starting stitching again.
Stay safe and have a wonderful weekend.
