I feel honored!
If you go to this link Tracy Horner has posted my CdC on her blog
I'm just thrilled.
Thank you Tracy!!

I've been working on this JBW on 55ct linen over2 and silk thread from France(thanks to Clare)sorry no blog.

OH my it's sooo tiny look at the needle it's the smallest piecemaker! 28

 This sampler is almost finished. I'm enjoying it.
I loved it when I was in a small stitching store in Plymouth Mas. and now  I'm still reminded of my great holiday to Cape Cod, while I stitch it.
It's a little bigger...yup 28 count..I'm not completely crazy..55 cnt is not something I work on every day...LOL!

I hope you all have a good night and stitch with happy fingers.

55 count? I didn't even know it existed, at least, not for stitching purposes. Yuck! It does look very, very good, though! As does your other sampler. What gorgeous colours!

Funny what can make a tiny needle look large. Your stitching is wonderful and can't wait to see the finished piece.
Be always in stitches.

Your sampler is so pretty. I just love the colors.

And 55 count? Oh my goodness. Do you use a microscope to stitch on it? :)

Hi Beatrice,

Uh! 55 count linen!!! They
make linen that small???? Holy
Cow!! Better you then me,
is all I can say. I have to
use a magnifier when I'm
stitching on 32 count fabric.
It's a pretty design though
and the silk must slip through
the fabric nicely. The little
elephant is adorable!!

You're making great progress on
Steadfast and True. Love the
colors in the sky in the bottom

Congrats on having a picture
of your CdC posted on Tracy
Horner's blog. But I'm not
surprised because it is a
gorgeous piece. Well done!!

Have a great weekend!!

It looks great Beatrice. Congrats also on having your CdC posted on Tracy's site. You deserve it!

Congratulations on showing up on Tracey's blog with your piece.
Your new WIP is stunning - 55ct fabric, that must be incredibly tiny and I'm sure I wouldn't see the holes even with my magnifier, lol. You're a brave stitcher.

Nice progress on our 55ct piece. I am on the 5th row. Will have to compare notes at the retreat. I hope to have mine done by then. Now off to stitch on my exchange orni.
