{ right back where I started from....}

sorry for the blur in the pic ~
I've gotten to the same point in my stitching on this 30ct linen as I did initially on the 32ct.
for my OWL O' ween design....
colorful highliters!
 on the left is the 30ct ~ the right is the 32ct:
really not a huge difference in finished stitched size, but stitching it is alot smoother now :)

the linen is all wrinkly because I'm stitching it without a hoop...
sometimes I use a little wooden hoop, othertimes, not.

hoping to stitch on it more this afternoon
after I resume getting the rest of the LSHC kits in the mail for you!

Hi Lori, Both look great to me. Do you usually find 30 ct is smoother? I usually stitch on 32 but could try 30 count.

Hi Barb ~ I like both, and really need to practice more on my 32ct :)

Evening Lori,
Well me not being an expert or even a novice - I can't really tell much difference but in person I'm sure there's subtle difference in the stitches. But what I see I like!

I like the 30ct just fine! While I love tiny stitches, I love the stitching more.

It's never fun to begin again on a design . . . but when it turns out so lovely it's all worth it!
Happy stitches!

For me, the smaller is more beautiful! I never use the hoop I love touch the linen stitching !
