Bit of an update and mini rant. No idea why I haven’t tried this before! Well no, that’s a lie. Linen kind of freaked me out. I decided to bite the bullet and just figure it out. This is my current project.
I’m doing this pattern and loving it. Sadly, the woman who made it passed 😦 I had looked her up hoping to follow and get more like it.
I’m using this Silk N Colors, which I got from Get Stitchin’ and the darker of my Belfast fabrics. I actually ran by Get Stitchin’ again today to grab the last two skeins of this color, just to be safe.
I love it. The silk goes through the fabric so smoothly it is really enjoyable to work on. The only kind of issue is the floss is tied to the cards and it causes some pretty hardcore kinks at one end. You don’t see it when it has been stitched but it is a bit of annoyance.
I’m hoping to get a lot more done this weekend!
