Acorn Progress


I am still shooting for my goal to finish Acorn Sampler this month. I have made it to the last band - all that delicate backstitching, the quidlobets and the verse are ahead. I do think this would have been much, much nicer on 32 ct instead of 28 ct linen (this is a class kit from Celebration of Needlework last month, so I had no choice) - the silk would have covered better ;-)

Stitched on today: Finished HoE LHN Exchange, and stitched on Acorn Sampler **Mailed out a new CE Exchange today

It's coming together beautifully! I will be rooting for you to get this finished this month :)

Great progress Carol. Strange isn't it how class kits are often 28 count when 32 would be better - yours looks wonderful though.

I think it is looking so lovely, Carol :) I tend to like 32ct much better than 28 myself :)But I will stitch on anything as I have lot's of 28ct. I will be using it :)
Have a nice weekend :)
((hugs))

Beautiful stitching Carol. :) I really do like this sampler, and silks can be a joy to stitch with.

Very beautiful Carol. I prefer to use a smaller count fabric too

Fingers crossed that you can still meet your goal Carol! It's looking lovely :)

I'm strictly a 32ct and above girl - I hate stitching on anything lower ;)

It's looking gorgeous Carol. I, too, prefer 32ct or even 36ct fabrics.

Julie said...

Carol! It's Gorgeous!!!!!!! I know you can get it done this month and while I, too, prefer the finer count linen, I don't think this piece could be prettier. You go girl!
