CJC 2016 #4

Hello Peeps!
CJC 2016 #4 is
Labybug & Daisy
This is what it will look like when finished
And this is my progress so far!
The top left hand side.


Stitched on Sew tt All 16ct aida fabric
White colour
1 over 1 using black DMC thread
I know blackwork is to be worked on evenweave fabric but had none handy, so aida will have to do...
I am still delighted with my start!
I have a long way to go but I thoroughly enjoyed working on something different.
I honestly can't wait to go back on this project.
Some of you will have also noticed this is not a small start!!
I hope you are impressed ;)
Toodles,
Mii
