Only 49 days till we fly! The kids only have 21 days of school left!
Why, oh why, do kit manufacturers insist on producing kits that only use 14 count aida? OK, I know a lot of people do actually like the stuff, but I personally know more people that don't than do. If the option to have a kit with evenweave was more widely available I would probably buy more kits because they're not very cost effective by the time I've swapped the fabric for something to my taste. I have a biggish pile of aida I've taken out of kits that I'll never use!
Anyway, here's today's update of Richard, minus aida
I can't get a picture that really shows all the sparkle - there is gold, purple, lilac, red and blue metallic thread in that little bit already and it really is 'twinkly'. Oh, and I forgot to mention...I'm stitching it on a piece of SMF 'Luna' Belfast.
