~ THIS IS LINEN ~

Beautiful and slubby 32 count and as of this morning................. I'm stitchin on it ~ YAY!  This breakthrough has been a looooong time coming, have been hoarding linen bit by bit for years, but never made the effort to stitch outside my comfort zone.  This was my one stitchy goal for 2009 ~ CHECK!!!!!

Sincere thanks to my dear stitchy friend Janice in Irondequoit for her patient/gentle guidance and private lesson at our LNS.  Janice knew just what it would take to push me over the edge, she ROCKS:) 

Won't you please join me in celebration???

Hate to tattle and run, but if you'll now please excuse me.......... got to get back to my LINEN ~ LOL!

Sweet Stitchin....

Tootles, Sue

  6. I like linen but I recall having to have a heavily padded special hoop due to the way the linen fibers can break so easy.

  7. I'm so pleased you are trying something new! It takes some getting used to but most stitchers are spoiled (lol) once they get "into" linen and evenweave! Have fun, Sue!
