Thank you to everybody for your e-mails and comments. I appreciate you taking the time to view my posts, pictures & leave a remark. This Summer has been quite busy & I have not accomplished as much as I wanted.
I did complete the stitching on this charming design. In answer to questions, yes, this is stitched over one thread. I chose a scrap of 32-count antique ivory linen. I used Anchor Floss from my fiber skeins - just chosen at random. If I were stitching this over 2-threads, I would probably have used the over-dye fibers suggested. I would like this to be a small lapel pin - and hope to get it finished in the next couple of days
As for the blogging questions, I do have more than one blog. I think most visitors look for needlework at this site. My Other Blog is mostly non-needlework posts & pictures. In addition, I participate in group blogs and yahoo groups. It is wonderful to belong to such a large, international stitching community!
