I hit a bump pretty early on after starting the stitching. I spilled tea or something on the linen. I thought I had a pretty good solution. Around the time I purchased this kit I also purchased a product called Distress It. It is a spray used to antique linen or other fabrics. So, I camouflaged my spill by antiquing the linen. Mission accomplished.
Due to some stitching mistakes and frogging, I had to purchase more Needlepoint Inc. Silk in black. Still later I had to rip out and acquire more of another thread. At some point I became so frustrated that I put the thing away.
I brought it out last year when I needed a project for my lunchtime stitching. Success was to be mine this go around, and I completed all the stitching. I tucked it away in my bag of items that need the finishing work done and moved on to other projects.
Last weekend I was poking around in that bag of items to see what I might want to "finish" and decided to give it a go. I am happy to report that this little project is done! Last weekend I did the sewing and today I added the beaded edging.
