I have not been stitching much for the past few weeks as I had an urge to do some knitting. I have now started Seventeen Sailors and here is my progress to date. I am enjoying stitching this apart from using the very pale cream colour as I find it difficult to work with on this coloured linen (Dublin 25ct, Nutmeg). The finished result is going to be much bigger than I envisaged as the recommended linen is 35ct.
I have neglected stitching Elizabeth Mitchell in favour of Seventeen Sailors. I love Elizabeth but now I have started working on linen I am not so sure about using Aida. Part of me wants to restart Elizabeth on linen but I keep wondering if I should continue on the Aida. I can't do the over one lettering on Aida so have started to work out this using Aida. If I continue I will take out the lettering I have done and do this area in memory of our much loved and missed cats and dogs.
