I'm attempting my first stitching on linen!!
I love how finished projects look when they're done on linen, but the material itself has always scared me. I have trouble getting all the counts right using aida cloth, how could I expect to get anything done using linen? :) I've played around with linen before, just to see what it was like and it felt too difficult for me, so this is my first official "project" using the pretty material.
Here's my progress so far:
It feels like it took me an hour just to finish that much!!! I've even had to frog a little, already!!! <sigh> But, I am loving how it's looking, so I'm determined to see it through!!
The pattern called for 36 count, but I decided to start slow, so I'm using 28 count (it feels like 500 count!!).
The pattern is adorable, here's a look at what my finished item should look like:
The pattern design is from The Drawn Thread and you can download it for free here.
I'm starting to put together some items for a contest! I'm excited.... I know I love getting stuff but giving away is just as satisfying! (After this linen attempt, I may have some linen to give away!!) :)
Happy stitching, blog-land!
