Teeny Tiny Stitching

I had a day off on Wednesday to wait in for the TV and clothes dryer repairmen, so spent a very pleasant day cleaning the house from top to bottom and carrying on in my mission to clear out the house for the upcoming potential car boot sale. We have so much junk! One family's junk, however, is another family's gold, or so I told myself as I boxed up books, videos, DVDs, bedding, and an brand new sandwich griller!

I started a new project last evening - I'm doing A Mon Ami Pierre's Victorian Pinkeep. This is 1/1 stitching and I'm doing it on 32ct linen using Vikki Clayton Hand-Dyed Fibers. I can only stitch a small bit at a time (with glasses shifted from my eyes to the top of my head - I'm only 33 and already I can't see small stitching!!), so I haven't gotten very far - it may take me a while to finish this one!

(I promise you there isn't much to see, and unfortunately Blogger has decided that the small photo I took of my progress isn't worthy of being published, or so I am assuming after repeated error messages! Hopefully photos tomorrow.)

Happy stitching everyone!

Ugh, I have a love-hate relationship with over 1 stitching. I am totally in love with how it looks, but my eyes completely hate the stress I put them through doing it. Looking forward to seeing a picture whenever Blogger decides to cooperate.
