A Little More Hanky Pysanky

I worked on this a little more last night. It's so much fun to stitch!



For those wondering I'm stitching it two over two on 32 ct. Belfast Linen. The threads I'm using is Carrie's Threads. It's my first time using them, and I like them. They're soft and easy to use. Write later! :)

  8. Seeing your progress on this piece makes me rethink my opinion of it. It has not been one of my favorites, but now I am thinking differently. Great progress.

  13. This is going to look fantastic when it's done! The pinks are so cool with the black. Are you liking the black to work on? I did 'fire and ice' by Kustom on black linen and it almost killed me, hahahah. Someone said to wear a white skirt or slacks when your stitching as it helps (a bit) as you can see through the fabric a better with the white behind it.

    Congrats with making your decision. My mum has a saying 'It'll be alright in the end......if it isn't alright yet....then it isn't the end' :)

    Everything is coming along nicely for you.

  14. That's looking terrific! I'll bet it's really rewarding to stitch, with the way those colors "pop"!

    Great job.
