OK you are all going to think that I am a whine, but stitching on 18 count fabric was just too much for my eyes. I asked Jerry what he thought of taking what I had stitched so far and making it in to a trivet. He thought that that would be a good idea so that is what I did. (picture to follow at a later time) I bought a bigger piece of 14 count Aida and hoping that the 3rd try at stitching this will be a charm. Attached is a picture of a puzzle I recently glued and had my Papa mount for me that now proudly hangs over our kitchen table. Off to a job interview. Will let all know how it turns out later.
