For such a little sampler, my progress has been quite slow on this one.
I still haven't decided what to do with the date that should go under the initials.
Here is what I have so far:
The stitches are tiny, tiny, tiny!
I just finished Freelove Hazard, which was stitched one over one, however, it was on 25 count linen.
There is a big difference between one over one on 25 ct and one over one on 35ct!
Not having a lot of fun here! My eyes are bleeding!
The little brick house measures all of 3/4" X 2/3", smaller than a postage stamp!
Stitching the mortar between the bricks nearly killed me!
The tree trunk is completed in a stem stitch, and the leaves are all tiny, tiny, lazy daisy stitches.
Also called for are backstitching, and horizontal satin stitches.
Frankly, I am a little surprised that this is suggested for a beginner. I would think a beginner would find the tiny stitches very difficult. You can't do much in the way of frogging here when the stitching is so tight.
I am already looking forward to my next project which will definitely not be one over one!
