I was hoping by this time to be done with Lucretia's border, a rather stitch heavy affair. This is my first foray into queen stitches and I have to say that while I do love them, they take an inordinate amount of time and thread. The effect they create makes up for all of this, however, I am not as far along as I'd like to be. I am doing charity stitching for the Embassy at the moment, which is quite time consuming.
I love Lucretia's vibrant colors and hope to be working on her insides within the week.
I am stitching this on 10.5 cm Gander (approx 28 count) Nacre linen instead of the provided 25 count linen. Gander linen is amazing, I just love it.
Thank you again Nicola and Jo for making such a wonderful forum possible. I receive daily inspiration from all the members of this group.
