Over the last 30 years my stitching has changed from Aida to evenweave to linen to scary (for me) 40 ct. linen. I'm in my 40s but my eyes aren't, so when I began stitching on these projects I exchanged contacts for glasses and donned my readers. I still stitch 40 count this way.
Speaking of 40 ct. I should be finishing up a small piece in the next couple of days I will share with you. Until then, I am grateful for stitching.
