DMC Stitchable Mesh, Anyone?

Whilst wandering through the world of blogs, I came across, on an embroidery site, mesh from DMC that is stichable.  A quick check from Joanne at 123 revealed this -http://www.123stitch.com/item/DMC-Stitchable-Mesh-Fabric-Reversible-GoldSilver-10x10/DMC-MSH

From what I've read on a couple of embroidery blogs, the mesh retains hoop marks, so that would be an issue for cross-stitchers. But has any one used this mesh and found any other issues?

I am intrigued at its possibilities! Thoughts, please!!

Taking a break from Linen and Threads Mystery SAL

I hadn't bought any cross stitch since I started working on the SAL, so it was time to rectify that!

I had a few designs on my wishlist that are quick stitches, compared to the SAL anyway.  One needs a quick stitch every now and then when working on a BAP, doesn't one?


Blackbird Designs- Liberty House
the fan that I am of Blackbird Designs made me buy it and it kinda looks like home


Lizzie Kate - Aging Artfully
well I am getting older...


And Lizzie Kate - Be Who You Are
because teens need a gentle reminder that its okay to be themselves


And it really is time to start thinking about this year's Christmas stitching...

Linen And Threads 2017 SAL April's Progress

As I fervently stitch away, I marvel at the symmetry of this design. At how the motifs fit so well together, and how the motifs are created so that a full repeat or half repeat occupies its own space.


If you are also stitching this, comment on this post and I'll drop by and have a look at your stitching!

Looking for the SAL by Linen and Threads?  here is the main page, looks for Mystery Sampler SAL across the top.
