This has been a fun stitch and the few days I have worked on it have gone fast. I have been neglectful of the kits I started and all other WIPs in my preparation of starting Sugar and Spice Heaven and Earth Design pattern by Dona Gelsinger. Such a beautiful piece of art and I have been longing to start it. After a few unsuccessful starts, fabric count issues and thread coverage problems, I finally found the combination that works for this one. 25ct Magic guide fabric with 1 over 1 full crosses. I had originally intended to wait til the Millenium Frame I ordered arrives before starting but I finally gave in early. I have stitched very little time over 3 days but here they are.
Day 1& 2 (I missed a day one pic)
Each stitch is so dainty and smooth. I am much happier with this than my first attempts.such a tiny portion completed but I am very pleased with the progress so far. Today's progress was in part to the fact that I found a way to enlarge and print my PDF pattern to 4 pages per 1 page originally which makes the symbols so much easier to read and my stitching goes faster. I was using my Kindle and swore I'd never go back to paper. Then my Kindle crashed, had to be reset to factory settings and all my progress was erased. So back to paper I went and now with the enlargements to the print outs I am content to continue this way for now.
