The more I thought about using the Leo & Rosy 46 count Porcelain for And A Forest Grew, the more I liked the idea so I stuck that piece of fabric in the bag with the floss. The fabric is the perfect size!
I don’t usually leave 2″ on all sides for the border and 2″ on all sides for finishing. I’m doing good to have a total of 2″ on all four sides but since I do my own framing, I don’t have to be concerned about requirements from a framer.
This piece of fabric is 29″ x 19″. That’s as close to perfect as I’ll get so this is a great choice.
I would like to think I could start this and make one tree per day but I have too many projects started now so this one isn’t going to get started any time soon.
But, during the night I woke up briefly and thought . . I can’t stitch on 46 count with DMC floss. It’s a bit too thick. I got up this morning and using DMC one strand, stitched a few stitches in the corner of the 46 count and that’s just too thick for my preference so . . back to the drawing board.
