This is the mock up of Elephant Walk from Heaven and Earth Designs.
Last week I decided I needed to start a new project… off I went to Joann’s to take advantage of the DMC floss sale and also bought a piece of 28 count evenweave. Back home I put in the grid for Elephant Walk by Kai and HAED and starting stitching. It was not a good experience and I decided that the fabric was the problem. I found another piece of 28 count in my resource center — higher quality / different manufacturer. I put in the grid and started stitching. It was another failed experiment…..
Conclusion: as much as I love the look of one over one, I no longer like stitching it in large quantities. The dark colors are struggle and using magnification makes by eyes hurt. Back to the resource center – this time I will try 22 count hardanger. Three is a charm!!
