I was kitting up a couple of small projects to take with me to Spring Fling. I kitted up the Just Nan little birdie thing.
Then I kitted up to make one of the vintage eggs from Cross Eyed Cricket Collection.
I put a few stitches in, made a counting mistake and turned the fabric around and started again on the other end. I kept going. The pattern calls for two strands on 28 count but I suspect I'm using 32 count. The thread is a little thick. I wonder what 1 strand would look like. One strand of silk would probably be perfect. Here is how far I am:
I am not pleased with the background. It is polka-doted but you can't tell. The threads are so close together colorwise that you can't see the pattern. I would like to stitch this all over again using one strand and changing the colors just a bit.
There was good weather for walking this morning. I'm thinking of starting to pack for my trip. I leave in four days. Exciting!
