With all of the talk about Scarlet Letter's Manifesto, I figured I would jump into fray!
Since the whole piece is stitched, I thought it would be the right opportunity to do a "big" silk gauze piece! So, I purchased the chart, a large piece of 40 count silk gauze (14 inches by 19 inches) and mounted it on stretcher bars. I locked it in my Lowery Stand and I was cooking with gas today!
I used over 120 tacks to get this puppy mounted! I will be stitching this piece only on Sundays! I have several other Sampler SAL's I am committed to...
Here is a close-up of what I have done so far. I put my needle minder next to it so you could get an idea of the size of the sun!
It is going to take a very, very long time to complete it piece, but I will try to make slow and steady progress one Sunday at a time!
