New Bear of a Start
I know I am out of control, but when Heaven and Earth Designs released this new chart by Dahlig yesterday I lost my mind! Within minutes I had purchased it and ran to the cross stitch store after work to get fabric. Alas they were out of the 25ct Lugana I wanted so I will have to wait until Saturday!
The delay did allow for some experimentation however. I am not happy with the way DMC 310(black) looks on 25ct, the white fabric pokes through in the most annoying way! I could do 22ct with 2 strands of DMC, but then she will be huge! 28ct seemed just too small (I am starting to sound like Goldi Locks). So I took out Pretty by Thomas and tried substituting the DMC with silk, and it was just right! The Maiden
