Well, I have jumped on The Manifesto Train! I am doing mine on 40 count silk gauze. I mounted the gauze on Thursday with the help of a couple of my stitching buddies and over 120 tacks later...she was ready for stitching!
Since Nicola recommended that we stitch this one day a week...I was happy to comply! Since I am doing several other Sampler SAL's right now, one day a week sounded great to me!
Here you can see from my stitching chair the stretcher bars hooked to my Lowery Stand. The bars are 14 inches by 19 inches.
So, this morning I picked up my needle got started. Below is a picture of where I am right now.
I put my needle minder next to the sun so you could get an idea of the size.
So far, it has been a fun stitch. It will be very slow going...But one day a week is doable for me!
