About a month ago my friend and I visited a new needlework shop not far from where I live, and we both fell in love with this model in the shop. It sang out to both of us, and it seemed only right that we work on this, together. We're having a 'stitch a long', some 65 miles apart.
We had to order the Valdani threads this project requires, and I had to order some fabric. The fabric I chose is a 28 count lambswool linen. Our beautiful threads arrived Friday after much anticipation and excitement on our part.
I finished off the raw fabric with a whip stitch last night, and I decided to stitch a few x's on it as well. A progress photo will be coming soon, when there's a few more x's to show. It's going to be such a fun stitch!

Thanks for stopping by today.
