I tried....

I really did....
I have tried & tried to stitch my Plump Wife pattern on 35ct, 1 over 1....
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
 I stitch it, 'cause I am still going to use the Gentle Arts Sampler Threads
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!


  1. 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.

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

  3. what will be, will be... there are so many shades of beautiful!

  4. Always so much time, effort, planning and trial and error with designing... we appreciate your efforts and are LOVE your designs!!!
