"Humble Adobe"

I decided to switch over from 25ct to 28 ct 2 over 2. It will be 56"H by 46" W when done. My eyes were becoming sore and I think I was straining them after stitching over an hour on 25ct one over one. The last straw was when I made an error and I was unable to frog the thread without damaging the fabric on 25ct. I am enjoying stitching on this fabric so far.


  1. Wow, it's gonna be huge when finished. I can't wait to see your progress on this Sue. I love the colors so far!!

  2. You really have to find what is comfortable for you to stitch on or it's not any fun and it will never get done! Well done on finding the right size for you! And nice progress!!

  3. Lovely progress. It's great you found what you're comfy with. You'll probably find it grows at a great rate now.


  4. I'm in the same boat! I can't stitch on 25ct but I do excellent on 22ct! I stitch over 1 with 2 threads. I think even though the size is bigger, with all the dark colours you will do much better on 28ct over 2. Great progress!

  5. It's coming along nicely!

    I agree with making it work for you. Frogging one over 25 count is no bueno, I agree! I'm stitching mine on an 18 count over one block and it seems to be just fine. I've already had to frog and it wasn't a *total* pain. Are you a member of the HAED BB? I just joined last night and have found a TON of inspiration and help already.
