Worked on a couple of things today. I've been wanting to do this owl from the JCS 2011 Halloween issue. It calls for 32 count raw Belfast linen which I don't have and would have to order online. I was looking for a substitute and realized that I have linen that color in 28 count. It's so small that the change in count only adds 1/3" to the piece. And the floss is DMC. So I went for it.
I had to put fray check on it because linen frays like crazy so while I waited for it to dry, I worked a square of my HAED. It hasn't seen the light of day in awhile.
