I am excited beyond words! All of these years, I’ve never even attempted to try to stitch on linen because it looked too difficult. But, after viewing the different blogs and seeing the completed projects on linen, I knew I had to at least try.
I got advice from my friend Deb who told me that the Better Homes & Garden’s Alphabet Heart Sampler would be a perfect beginning piece for me to try, so I went shopping for linen. I was lucky to find several pieces on clearance at JoAnn’s so that was a sign that I had to at least give it a try.
This is my progress on my first piece. It’s stitched on 28 ct ivory linen using DMC variegated garnet floss. This will go perfect in my bonus room.
I have a coworker who is purchasing her first home and I found a pattern by Gloria Moore (Milady’s Needle), “At Home With Family & Friends.” I purchased 32 ct sand dune linen to stitch on, so I’ve got to finish my heart sampler soon so I can get started on it!
