A new project

For the past little while there have been multiple distractions and calls on my time and I have done little but kit up a few projects.
Then this week I decided I wanted a project to actually stitch.   This was the last in the basket and as it has been on the list since 2005 it is about time! 
I remember sending to America to Criss Cross Row for the fabric and the silks for this and they have sat awaiting some love ever since.
Here's a shot taken with the macro lens to show that stitched over one on 32 count linen it is very fine.  A labour of love I think but linen fabric and silk floss -  what's not to love?
My days of over one on fine linen are numbered so I need to get this finished.
There are a couple of other small finishes that just need construction which I hope to fit in over the next few days.  Hopefully I will be back soon with an update.

  1. That's a great new start. It'll certainly take some time but will look so lovely when done!

    1. You are so right. This is going to take time.

  2. That is a beautiful piece and will be gorgeous when it is complete. I am happy with over one on 32 but 28 is much easier!

    1. I'm hoping I haven't bitten off more than I can chew with this one. My eyesight is not improving with age:-)

  3. My eyes hurt just thinking about all that fine stitching. Would imagine it's easier to see in daylight then by light at night? Keep us posted.

  4. I have a really good daylight lamp and magnifying spectacles so all I need is the time to do this.
