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.
