Finish, and Caveat

Finish, and Caveat

Post by Karen » Thu, 04 Apr 2013 03:25:27



Found the perfect gift for a friend (who doesn't even own a TV) -- The
Posy Collection's "I cannot live without books" bookmark.

Most of it stitched up easily, simple block letters, no shading on the
stacks of books.

And then there was Thomas Jefferson's signature... damn near every
stitch began and/or ended at a halfway spot.  I don't mind piercing the
Aida blocks for partial stitches (just use a thinner sharp needle), but
the counting was making me crazy.  If the enclosed fabric had been
linen, I would've just recharted it, one box per thread, but since the
kit was on Aida, that probably would've confused me even more.

The good news, there's enough floss in the kit to stitch it a second
time for another friend.
