I’m sure you’re wondering what progress there’s been with my 25th anniversary stitching of DT Marriage of the Minds. I must admit that things have been slow – I’ve been ‘distracted’ by other little projects, I think, mainly because I’m not 100% happy with the results. I’ll tell you why after you’ve seen the photo updates below…
The truth of the matter is that I’m not happy with it because there’s insufficient coverage with the one strand thread and I can see too much fabric behind it 😦
Bottom line: it’s a toss between 1) unpicking what I’ve stitched and starting again with DMC threads on the same 32 count fabric OR 2) getting 36 count linen fabric and starting afresh using the NPI/Gloriana threads. My decision? Option 2. Means a bit more of a delay until I get in the 36 count fabby – but that doesn’t worry me too much. Instead of frogging, I’ll finish what I’ve already stitched into a little commemorative pillow with our initials on it. I’ll be happy with that! Problem solved 😆
Talking about Drawn Thread, if you fans out there haven’t already seen the new releases, pop over to Cynthia’s blog and check them out! She’s also designed a new freebie for us to stitch – thank you, Cynthia.
Happy Stitching 😉
