This little chart is still available from Kitten Stitcher. A stitch along started on October 19 but I wanted to finish the Christmas Sampler before moving on to Margaret Doyle. Hands Across the Sea charts are always so nice and easy to follow. I love the background/history that Nicola gives with her charts.
I had done a few stitches when the chart first arrived because I had not stitched on 46 count linen before.
I’m still counting today as my official start date since this was really just practice.

What fabric is that Judy? I’m doing mine on 46-ct, too. I don’t think it’s my favorite count, but I’m managing just fine! I only had the called for in 46 count.
It’s 46 count also. I bought the kit and so far, the floss/stitches are just lost. I’ll keep going but it’s going to be torture sticking with this one unless things get a whole lot brighter as far as the stitches showing up better.
..I hope you enjoy it…it’s full of those diagonal lines and leaves!
Also, if that’s the border, it looks pretty subtle in the sample; more than the rest of it.
You’re right. Lots of the kind of stitching I struggle with. At least it’s fairly small.
