I confess that I wasn't going to follow directions. Amy Mitten recommends washing the linen in her kits. I stitch in hand and hate limp linen. But the linen in the kits was very stiff. So I gave in and decided to wash it. Stick it in the washing machine? No, too harsh. So I just soaked it in the sink. I was surprised at the amount of starch (or whatever it is) that came out of the linen. I was crossing my fingers that it wouldn't be too limp. I was shocked at the outcome.
I got my kit for Sylvan Scenes yesterday. Oh my goodness, I have so many things I want to start. But I won't let myself start this one until I finish that SNS Christmas ornament/bag from Barbara Jackson.
So I worked a bit on Eleonora's Box. I made good progress on one side. This linen is pretty limp and I make more mistakes because of it.
I bet I could finish this side if I worked on it all day. But I know I will want to work on some other things too.
