I tried....

I really did....
I have tried & tried to stitch my Plump Wife pattern on 35ct, 1 over 1....
BUT
I have ripped it out SO many times that I'm frustrated with it,
it just kept 'sinking' into the linen
so I am going to just go ahead & stitch the model on 18ct. aida...
don't worry,
it will be just fine on that, especially once I stain it...
...which I will do to the aida
BEFORE
 I stitch it, 'cause I am still going to use the Gentle Arts Sampler Threads
(GAST)
and want them to show up really well....
here's the before, on 35ct linen, 1 over 1:
so there ya go...thought I'd let you asll know!
tomorrow's a new day &
I'll be stitching during the quilt class!!!
{at least I'll have it done sooner for you now!!}

I'll take pictures of the class & share tomorrow ~
have a peaceful night!
Blessings from the Farm!

Isn't it so disappointing when your stitching doesn't turn out as wonderful as it was in your head? :)
Try, try again.....
This time it will be great.

I don't do over one because of that very reason. There are people that love it but I just don't know why.
