As you can see I have stitched a little more on Petites Lettres Rouges. It's slow going but I am enjoying it! I had thought that the Gander fabric was 40ct but, by my calculations, with a stitch count of 110 x 62, 1*2, the design would measure 5.5" x 3.1". As you can see the side measurement is 2.5" so the fabric must be 48/50ct - no wonder I had to use my magnifier! Did anyone notice that the W was missing from the pattern and that the X and Y are round the wrong way? I am undecided as whether to put this right or stitch as charted but, as I have already corrected the border and have decided to stitched the numbers in line with the letters, I probably will put it in if the space is big enough. I made a mistake in that I stitched the 9 one stitch too close to the 8 so I had to unpick - I think you can just see this? Let me tell you that unpicking on such a high count fabric is not an easy task?

It was a lovely sunny day yesterday so I was able to sit outside with my book - Karin Slaughter's 'Triptych' - I have been wanting to read this for ages and it was another of my 'finds' at the library last weekend.
Thanks for visiting
