I have not touched this in forever. I think it is the fabric. It is the first time I have stitched on 45 ct and I was really struggling. All of a sudden today it all seemed okay and I made some progress. This is done on Vintage Buttercream with Belle Soie conversion from the Attic. I stitched for a while last night and a little today and added a little bit of progress at long last. I am going to make this my Sunday stitching project for a while and see if I can't get going on it. The fabric color is warmer than it shows in the pic, it is overcast here and I couldn't get a good shot. Maybe with the next progress I will be able to do better. Marjo in Alaska
Welcome to the Mary Wigham USA Stitch-Along Blog. I hope everyone enjoys working on their own Mary while seeing everyone else's progress! It's inspirational to see all the different color combinations being stitched! If there are any questions, please contact Valerie, Group Moderator, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
To be as all inclusive as possible we are suggesting 32 count Permin Lambswool stitched over 2 threads and you will need 24" x 24" or 60cm x 60 cm of linen. (The design area will be approximately 20" x 20" - 50cm x 50cm.) If you are able to stitch smaller, then please do. Mary's sampler is approximately 13" by 12.5" - 33cm x 31.5cm. The stitch count is approximately 300 stitches by 290.
Floss colors: Mary Wigham SAL - DMC Threads Here are the DMC thread shades for Mary Wigham but feel free to convert them to whatever threads you prefer.
