Hello dear stitching friends!
Two weeks ago I spent 3 days sick in bed with the flu, and several more days trying to recover. Now my boss is out of the country and I have to work extra hours. I did not want to pull Lady Godiva into that craziness so I did what any (in)sane stitcher would do. I started a new piece! Afterall, I've been wanting to try the opalescent lugana and I had the perfect pattern for it...
This is QS Stella by Selina Fenech. She is stitched on 28ct opalescent white lugana, 1x1, full crosses. I loooove those sparklies!
The fabric has a learning curve. It is stiff and scratchy, like Kreinik. I have to keep the floss much shorter because it frays very quickly. I also need lots of new needles because many of the holes are closed. There are also many areas where I have to make the hole based on the stitches around it. Frustrating at times, but I can't seem to put her down!
Hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of Fall!
