DUCJC 2016 - Day 5 - Let's Eat Dessert

Morning all!

The chosen start for day 5 was something totally different for me. I have seen a few Ursula Michael "Let's" Word charts stitched up (mainly by Katie, Jeremiah's Mom) so thought I would have a browse for one or two (or more!) for myself. Amazingly I only bought this one but definitely believe it will not be my last!

Here's my progress for the day:


Let's Eat Dessert by Ursula Michael
Artecy (via crosstitch.com)
Stitched on 16ct Crocus hand-dyed aida by The Crafty Kitten 2 over 1
Stitch count 97 wide by 125 high
Estimated stitching time 40 hours
Stitching time to date - 3 hours 15 minutes


I thought the fabric gave this design a really sweet-tooth feel. If I were to stitch another similar design I would probably choose evenweave over aida as there are lots of fractionals.

And to prove I'm human, frogs kept visiting. I couldn't believe how many times I miscounted at the beginning, even though I only had to count up to two or three! By the time I'd got to "Butterscotch" though I'd sent the frogs packing.

Tomorrow sees the return of a character who appeared on two of last year's finished Challenge pieces.

Take care

  7. Ohh of course I love it!! Great choice too. So cute. You're right the fabric does look yummy. Wonderful start!! Sorry the frogs wanted to join along but glad you told them to go away quickly. I found I miscount these alot too. I just have to slow down and I count several times before I move on haha.
