QS Pearl

Hi all here is quick update on "Pearl" I think she is starting to take shape and looking good.

QS "Pearl" 19th April 2010
She is Stitched on 18cnt Adia 2 over 1 with DMC Threads!

Are there any Stitchers out there that regulary stitch in 22ct I would love your Opinions. I have brought some and thinking about a re-start on my "Sin" Charts!

Drop me a line here or on my Blog!

Happy Stitching All!

Looks lovely so far!
I'm currently stitching three prjects and they're on 14, 22 and 25ct, I think 22 is a nice in-between size, especially if you haven't stitched on something really small. The fabric for 22ct can be a little harder to source though would be my only comment

I have a question regarding count too. The HAED I fancy starting is recommended to be done over 25ct ... but I have never tried evenweave and don't fancy starting before I get a magnifying glass ... ruined my eye sight enough as it is - I looked like a crazy woman in the lamp department stressing the importance of the natural light bulb and wanting to get the cheapest lamp possible. Plus I probably should try something smaller on evenweave first in case I hate it absolutely. So is it okay to change to say 18ct from 25ct? It will probably increase the size of the piece by a great deal and increase the amount of thread I'd require, but do people do that change the size to suit themselves?

Lol I understand the light delema! Why not try doing a story keep on 25ct , theyre nice and small and it will give you a chance to see if you like the size. And you can change the size of the count, but it will definitely increase the size and the thread requirements

I stitch regularly on 22ct. I have have worked on every fabric from 14to 32ct and I love using 22. It is the highest count I will use for 2 strands over 1. Anything higher it becomes too tight and I don't enjoy stitching. Manbroider the best thing about 22ct is the coverage using 2 strands. There is no show through. However I do agree with Tanya the only prob is that if you like to buy dyed fabbies it is harder to find companies that pre dye them. But it's easy enough to buy white or opalescent and dye yourself. I thnk you would enjoy working on 22. Hope this helps. xo
