Have started to stitch on the piece of linen which Margaret bought for me. At first it was difficult as the fibre is very fine (32 count) and difficult to see where the holes are. Am stitching one over two from a chart from the French mag -De Fil En Aiguille - Sampler (special edition). Am using DMC 75 (a variegated red) Since receiving the magnifier from Jean, stitching is a breeze - no more tired eyes! lol.
My CB is progressing along slowly. This is how it looks after nearly 2 months and finishing one card (8 yards) of the threads. There were a few misses and needed to undo and the thread broke! Have started to use the 2nd card - 2 yards done.
Have also found the pattern from an Aussie mag to make up the anniversary gift. It will be turned into a wall hanging!
