I started this wonderful little sampler recently and am now stuck. I am your average stitcher, and can read a pattern, but Polly has me perplexed. I am appealing to all you wonderful needlewomen in the hopes that your vast experience will get me stitching again.
I avoid 40ct....it's useless...I can't see the holes! I think this linen is 35ct....
My dilemma is this...the instructions say stitch second alphabet using one thread over one thread...I get that....this is what I don't get....
See the lower case abc..
...this is what I came up with...yuck...I am now totally convinced I can't stitch one over one...it's too small for me. How can I keep the alphabet small...but not stitch over one? I use a magnifier, but in this case it's not helping much.
I'd appreciate any advice or ideas...thanks so much.
Enjoy the day,
