I'll never look at checkers the same way ...



I started this about 4 days ago and I've already started dreaming about squares. Argh! This is one Mira I can tell is going to take awhile. I think it's because I'm working this one on linen. I have to be careful of my needle placement and how hard I tug on the thread.

This is 28 ct Silkweaver Antique Gold Linen that I bought off Carol awhile back. When I first started I thought the fabric was going to wash out the stitching but now I'm really starting to like it.

Oh, and this is Villa Mirabilia.

AND I hope everyone has a safe holiday weekend!!

It's gorgeous! But you're right - the squares are pretty overwhelming

I think that's a good fabric choice - especially as I always think VM is a hard design to pick fabbie for.
