I'm A Winner!

Look what I won.....




This was the giveaway that Chelle was having; she even included the floss!  The fabric is linen, which I have never stitched on.  Ever.  It's so soft and so intimidating! I'm almost afraid to stitch on it because I don't want to ruin it.  But I guess I just need to jump in head first and see how it goes!

Thank you Chelle, I love everything!!

I'm heading to my stitching chair to work on Fern and to think about starting Butterfly! lol

Happy Stitching!

Do not be afraid. Just make sure you do something to keep the edges from fraying and you'll be fine.

I'm glad you like it. :o)

Hugs,
Chelle

Very pretty win! And as Chelle said, make sure to finish the edges of the fabric to prevent fraying. I also find using Q-Snaps with my linen works very well and easier to count the holes since linen is so soft and floppy :) Don't be afraid!

Lovely win, Carrie. And don't worry about stitching on linen, it's not hard at all. I'm sure you can find a diagram online that will make it clear easily. Have fun!!! Can't wait to see Fern.

What a wonderful prize! I am stitching on linen right now and the holes are actually easier to see than on evenweave. Good luck!
