Snow Stocking Page 7 Complete
Just a quick update tonight, because my husband is cooking pizza and that trumps blogging. I have about 20 minutes to get this up and posted and the clock is ticking!
I'm back on Adrift, and I'm expecting this next page to be a quick stitch.
I have to say, for Adrift, I'm working on Lugana, and for Snow I'm working on 18 ct Magic Guide. Although, for me, Magic Guide is less hassle as you don't need to grid, I find Lugana more pleasurable to stitch on. I find with Aida I have to stitch a tighter stitch, and it strains my fingers.
Has anyone else encountered this?
My next projects will be on Lugana, I think I'm pretty much done with Aida.
Curious to know what everyone's favourite cloth is to stitch on? Linen? Lugana? Aida? Anyone have a preference? I personally find Lugana softer, but the downside is sometimes stitches can slip under the weave and I have to really watch for that happening and correct it as I go. Otherwise, I quite enjoy stitching on it.
I'd love to hear what you like/don't like about your fabrics.
I smell pizza, so sorry to cut this short...but pizza!!
