Walking to Town Progress

Well, here is my "work" project....my lunchtime sanity break is stitching on this. It's coming along quite nicely (if I do say so myself) although not as quickly as I would like. I look at my pictures, and I HAVE made substantial progress, it just takes a while because it's only an hour a day, five days a week (at most....).

When it's done, my next work project will probably be Frederick the Literate. It's a Dimensions kit, but I think I'll trade the fabric out. It's 14 count black aida, and I don't necessarily like aida (although this one is on aida, it was before I tried other fabrics), plus I'm not overly fond of 14 count...I like 18 count better. So, I'm off to calculate the difference in fabric saize and get some better black fabric. That may be tomorrow's project...now that I've found a LNS. (hmmmm....when you use initials that kind of start with a vowel sound...."ell".....would be "an LNS" or is it "a LNS" because it would be "a local needlework shop"......such dilemmas!).

Anyway, thanks for checking out my blog. Hopefully Sunday evening I'll post my week's progress on Angel of Cross Stitch.

Even if you decide you want to stick with 14 aida...and I can see that you probably won't...LOL...you will want to switch out the fabric for a larger cut!! The one in the kit is just barely one inch around bigger than the stitched area!!
