Not So Scary


I have officially begun my new Bee Fob project, and I am finding that I'm really enjoying stitching on linen (32 ct ivory), and looking back, allowing myself to be so freaked out about the whole advancing beyond Aida, seems very silly.
I discovered a wonderful tutorial that had many hints about stitching on linen, and I am really proud of my achievement!

  1. Good for you! I wish I had the patience to do that type of project. I get a little too compulsive over mistakes. LOL

  4. This looks SO GOOD!!!! you are doing really well on linen here.
    I think that linen is fun but still find 1 over 1 a bit challenging.
    You'll find you probably won't go back to Aida now.....honestly, you'll love working with linen. Its addictive.

  5. Jennifer.....Oh thanks.....you make me feel sooo good, I was really nervous, but this is so typical of me....jump in with both feet first, panic, then just do it....my motto...go big or go home...and the funny thing is that I feel like I just graduated from the kid's table to the grown ups table now that I have done linen....ROFL :)
