I'm stitching in one thread of floss over one thread of 28 count cashel linen - the threads are GAST, those specified in the chart "How Doth The Busy Bee" by Thistle Threads. Suzanne kindly loaned me the chart - thanks Suzanne.

A new start
The basket band is started. A whole four and a half inches are done - with 22 and a half inches to do this is going to take a while! But it has to be finished by mid August so I labour on! The colours are beautiful and I'm enjoying the delicate variation -especially in the lighter green thread which is called Avocado. Today I got some green cotton fabric for the basket lining.
