Ok, so I had been DYING to try my hand at stitching on linen. I couldn’t wait! Wednesday night I finnnallly got my chance. It was a little rocky… I was so nervous. I think I got about 40ish stitches down before I couldn’t stay away any longer.
Thursday, I ended up pulling out all my stitches from the night before, and redoing it because I had stitches wrong in two places. I restitched 64 stitches.
Last night I stitched a ton. Not sure how many stitches, but I got SO much done, and it looks AWESOME. Omg, I swear, I never want to use aida again (unless it’s a kit, lol). It does take a bit more concentration, buuuuut, the result…:
This is the beginning (January) block for the Woodland Sampler by the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery on 32 Count Vintage Country Mocha Belfast by Zweigart 2 over 2.
This is probably going to be the brefiest post I’ve ever made since I want to jump back into stitching, but in other news I won over $380 on Thursday night when my husband and I hit the local “racino” on our date night. I was playing a silly Wheel of Fortune machine and just kept winning. I’m so happy. I now have an excuse to buy more supplies 🙂
Anyway, been working today and hanging with the kids, now it’s time to relax and work on my sampler!
