After many years of not embroidering, I'm back doing it. Alas the eyes are not what the eyes were. Now I need magnification and light. I'm due for an eye exam in a couple of months so I'll ask the eye doc about new glasses just for stitching.
28 count linen, which is now as fine as I can go, but it's fine.
I started this maybe 8-9 years ago? I'm retired over 7 years, and I know I started this well before I retired.
What got me started again was my rummaging through a closet. i was cleaning out that closet and there at the bottom, each in its own pillow case, were about 8 stitching projects. So last week I hauled them out and decided to work on this one.
Second row: Yes, it is not even, but I've got a ladybug charm to go there.
I skipped a row because I didn't like it. But since you don't know the row, it doesn't matter.
Last row: There is some back stitching going on in the flowers. I just haven't gotten to it yet.
I forgot just how much I loved embroidery, especially anything counted. I love anything that involves graph paper (knitting charts and I love each other), and counted thread is all charted.
