More 40ct Madness

Now that I've done one ornament on 40ct linen, why not do more right? Today I spent the day working on two more ornaments in the Damask Ornaments series I started a short while ago. What have I learnt from today's stitching? Don't work on 40ct all day long. Boy my eyes are just done for tonight! I better get my beauty rest so that I can spend tomorrow afternoon stitching with my friend Manon!

Here's the results of today's madness!

I just shook my head, of course she would do TWO MORE on 40 cnt, crazy lady...but I can't wait to see what else you produce in lightning speed!
Do you have everything kitted up for New Years yet? I know I have a couple on the go but I still really wait to get my fairy godmother started so that may be my New Years start.
Chat with you soon...B

Carmen said...

Melanie said...

40 count! WOW!!! Beautiful stitching!

Julie said...

Really lovely, smallest count i've used is 32, maybe i should branch out and try something smaller LOL

Karan said...

Very pretty & lovely colours. :0)
I think that small a fabric count would finish off my eyes for good.

Lelia said...

Oh so very beautiful! Yeah, I cannot do over-one for longer than an hour. It is just too much.
Luv the results - just need to be patient with the stitching : )

Enjoy the day

I really like the second one, but they've all been really pretty. 40 ct. can be a bit of a challenge, but it produces such nice results.
