A new start

Well, I started a new project on Monday - this one is called "MawMaw's Quilt". I'm enjoying it, although it is a challenge for me. There are a couple of firsts (for me) involved in it. It's on 40 count linen (over 2) and it's the first time I'm stitching on that fine a fabric. Also, I'm stitching with silk floss, which I have never done before.

This isn't a HUGE piece (it will end up being 8 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches) but with the fact that it's so teeny tiny is making it a bigger project than it sounds.....LOL

So...tomorrow it's Monopoly, then Monday I'll be pulling out Angel of Cross Stitch again.

Nice start and I know it's going to be lovely. I haven't woked on 40 count in years and years but have a couple of charts that call for it so may have to bite the bullit soon and get some. I love working with silk.

It is looking lovely! I finished mine earlier this year, and the 40 count intimitated me too. But it it turned out to be one of my favority finishes of the year.

You have made a good start! I am doing some Christmas ornaments on 40 ct. It sure is small isn't it!

This is going to be lovely. one of my WIPs is a sampler on 40 ct with silks, and I really enjoy it. Looking forward to more updates!

Kathy this is really pretty. I have never worked with either silk thread or 40 count before. Keep up the good work. Can't wait to see more.

Great start Kathy! What color is that fabric? It is lovely! = )

Also, don't downplay the work you're putting in on it, the final size is small because the fabric count is so HIGH! If you were doing this piece on 28ct, you'd have a final size of over 12 x 12 - quite a healthy BAP. = )

Looks like an interesting piece. Good luck, it will be fun watching your progress.

It looks like it is going to be absolutely gorgeous!

That's a great start! I've never worked on 40 ct. and I think you're a very brave woman!

Very nice start with the new linen and silks. I have not tried silks yet but maybe one day! Will be watching for more progress.
