This has been a busy summer. Not just with family, but designing as well.
So here is a post to get you up to date.
O, Christmas Tree
Count the Flowers

Since most, ok all of the designs I stitch are on linen fabric. I wanted to do a little tutorial on how to stitch on linen for those of you who are anxious to start stitching.
Usually I stitch on 28 count linen, which means there are 28 threads per inch. You stitch over two threads so you end up with 14 stitches per inch. For this count you usually use 2 ply of cotton or silk threads. I like to use a petite tapestry needle size 28. Experiment with needles to see what you are comfortable with.
It is easier to stitch on linen if you start along a vertical thread as shown by the green line. Bring your needle up next to the vertical thread at the green dot. Then complete your stitch as shown in the diagram. If all of your stitches start at the vertical thread, it is easier to count and you will quickly know when you are off.
Happy Stitching, Wendy

Grandma's Flower Garden Free Chart
Here is a new little freebie.
Here in Idaho we are freezing and the only hope we have of flowers is if we stitch them ourselves.
I hope you enjoy stitching this new little chart.
