Quakers Rule

Hey, I thought I ruled! ;-)

And Nancy, before you say *something* about Mime... LOL... I HAVE been working on it! Here’s the lasted latest project I’ve started. It’s called Quakers Rule.

I was a little intimidated at the thought of stitching on 40ct linen even though it’s over-two. Once I got started, it really isn’t so bad. The stitches are so tiny and dainty. I’m using a combination of DMC and Olde Willow floss. Here’s what it looks like after one hour:

Your Quaker Rule is going to be beautiful. The colors are so pretty, and what tiny stitching. I don't know how you can work on 40ct. I love the look, but don't seem to be able to get above a 32 ct without my eyes starting to cross.

Glad your trip to the dentist turned out so well. Going a whole year could have a lot more issues than just tarter. Yup, skinny and no gingivitis would be good. :)

I have some 40 ct linen in my stash, I just need to use it sometime. I did start a 40ct silk over one this week on vacation. I actually stitched on the plane (when it was smooth sailing and the sun was coming in the window) It's a struggle sometimes on my old eyes. But I love the miniature effect. This looks like its going to be a great piece.

It is really looking nice. I like the pattern.

Nice start! That is going to be a lovely project.

I've never stitched on 40 ct, so I don't know how hard it would be. Seems like a challenge, though. I'm sure that you'll master it with no problem. :)

Love the look of the stitch on the 40 ct, but I think it would be too hard for me but maybe with really good lighting.I think I have this one on my wish list or to be put on yet not sure which... Enjoy it looks great!
