You knew it would happen.....you knew I could not resist.....especially if it is done in Ecru.....I have no willpower......I am very weak!
I had to start the Loretta Spears piece!! Ecrusheen (Mystery #12) was sitting there with all the fibers ready to go just yelling my name!
So, here we go. The South Cross Stitch is worked with Kreinik #4 in 205C. The recipe calls for three spools of this so we are going to be seeing it a lot! It is also worked with DMC Perle Cotton #12 in Ecru. This is a very interesting stitch, not hard to work, but you need to pay serious attention to your counting and the diagram.
After that, I used a single strand of Marlitt and did four straight base Sprats Heads on each of the sides.
Not bad for the first night's work!
Happy Mother's Day everyone!!
