This piece is stitched on 40count Newcastle linen using the DMC conversion except for the variegated red which is an unknown thread I had in my stash! It's not stranded and it is thicker than two strands of DMC so I have to be careful where I use it. Anything surrounded by other stitches (eg the "S") is stitched using the plain DMC red.
The other change I've made is to satin stitch all the little cotton reels. I also want to make all the little pins into pearl headed pins using beads. I'll add the beads and charms at the end.
The final part is due out 1st May.
