Update on Noah

Here is my 40ct piece. The other half of this 40ct piece I will be using to do one of the other sunday school lessons in this series, and that will be the end of working on 40ct I believe :). I'm doing "ok" with 1/2 but the 1/1 is killing me. My eyesight just is not good enough to work on linen this small.


Everyone is working on such pretty pieces. I love visiting your blogs and try to comment as much as possible. I appreciate everyone who visits mine.

Over one on 40 count? Good heavens, your poor peepers!!

It looks wonderful, though. Great job!

Julie said...

WOW you are brave, but it certainly looks wonderful. I don't think i would dare to try 1x1 on 40ct!!!

Jenn said...

I go right to my magnifying glass when I pull out the 40 count fabrics. Somtimes even for the 32 counts also :)

Your doing a great job!

Pumpkin said...

This piece is so adorable and I can only imagine how difficult is must be working 1/1 on 40 count! I'm sure the detailing is incredible :o)

Mary said...

I couldn't see that stitching either!! I am currently working on a sampler that has a few lines of 1x1 on 32, and that is about my limit! LOL Looks fantastic!

Ranae said...

I do love 40ct, but 1/1 is a different story, lol.
Good Luck! It's looking great.

Suzanne said...

Wow, you are doing an excellent job. I agree that 1/1 on 40ct can be really difficult. I have really good close up vision, but even I find it challenging. I love the design.

It looks wonderful, such a fun design. I'm amazed at the 1/1 on 40 ct though, I couldn't do that, no wonder your eyes get tired.

Wow it certainly looks good but I really do not think I could cope with 40 count even doing 2 x 2. It must be very slow and careful work.

Great 40 ct. work! I love how tiny and beautiful it turns out. Thanks for stopping by to see me. The books are great for reading when you have a chance. I miss our email talks, too!
Hugs, Deb

Sally said...

Wow I can't believe you're stitching some of this over one! I don't think I could. It looks fantastic!

Kathy said...

Love Noah. 40-ct is something that I have not tackled yet. Bless you for doing some over 1 on that. It must be very tiring on your eyes.

Carla said...

Looks awesome! Great job!!

Emily said...

It is looking great. I am doing VOHRH on 40ct, and find that I get tired after a few days of it, and then I go onto something else.

It's looking great so far!

Stephanie said...

Looking great, and I admire your perseverence in stitching on 40ct - and 1/1!! I don't know if I would be able to take something like that on, I think I'd get a headache from all the concentrating!!

Rachel S said...

That is very pretty!

It looks great! I like working on finer counts of fabric but I'm sure I would draw the line at 1 over 1 on 40ct! Good luck with it.

Lynn said...

I think I'm in the same boat with the eyesight. One of my coworkers just brought in a piece she did over 1 on 40ct. I had a look at it and thought "No way!". I'll stick to my 32ct.
Looks fantastic though!

Hazel said...

This is lovely. Very pretty. xx

You deserve a medal for attempting 1/1 on 40 ct fabric!
I'm having a hard time with doing it on 29ct.
Wonderful work as always. This is such a lovely design
