Although I like this design I am not enjoying stitching this at all. There are so many fractional stitches with some being two threads and others three and also some having to be stitched in the wrong direction it justs looks a bit of a mess to me.
Its being stitched on 16 count aida which doesn’t help with the fractional stitches so I am contemplating starting again using evenweave which I think will make it easier to stitch. I am going to Polstitches with Sandra next week so will show her what I have done together with the pattern to make sure I’m stitching it correctly. I think I will have a look for an alternative fabric then decide what to do. It does seem a shame to abandon it but I’ve not done too much I know this will just become another unfinished project. Here is what I’ve done so far.
