I am using a navy linen purchased in the haberdashery at Denman in February. I have three motifs almost finished, but each of the motifs have just one or two stitches in a few different colours. I have left these until I have a large area to stitch later in that colour.
My linen was starting to fray so I took some pretty bias tape from my work table and bound the edges. It looks so pretty and is now easier to work on.
I must go and check if there's Friday night stitching tonight and I can get out the binding of my Schnibble to sew along.
