Anyway I was looking through the website the other day and the hubby wandered over to see what I was doing. " Oh I really like that one " he said. "Why don't you get it, you haven't done any real stitching for ages". So like a fool I bought it.
30 pages of pattern and 3 pages of thread lists from my poor printer,and the design is only 25" by 25".
So what was the design
There are 88 different colours in this design and it uses 30, yes 30 skeins of black. It'll be done on 25 count linen over one thread and it'll probably destroy my eyes. You can find the design HERE
Having not got many threads I've had to order in most of what's needed and they came this week, along with the linen.
At 625 x 625 stitches I think it's going to take all week just to grid the linen.
On another front my hexagon quilt is growing
I need to prepare some more hexies so I can continue. This is my morning and car park project. I'm up at 6am each morning and after I've walked Stan I have an hour to myself before I take the daughter to work. I can either get a rosette done or attach one to the quilt in this time. I can also part make a rosette while I'm waiting in the car for Gemma to come out of work, and yes I do get some strange looks from others in the car park.
I'll be linking up to Kathy's Quilts Slow Stitching Sunday and hopefully will be able to post progress of the Nebula cross stitch each week although I think I'll need to name my posts extremely slow stitching.
