I have a problem, well I have many but this is a particular problem. I only ever stitch with evenweave or occasionally aida. I never ever ever stitch with linen...I'm to scared. The problem is you see that once upon a time, long long ago, I started stitching Mirabilia's Cottage Garden Fairy on a piece of linen.
I can't remember what it was but just about every stitch I put in was 'hiding' under the threads. I don't know if that's because I stitch 'the wrong way' meaning \\\\\ and then ///// or if I was doing something else wrong but now I am scared to try again. I have got some gorgeous hand dyed linens that people have given me in exchanges etc that are just sat in the drawer and admired until I realise it is linen. So the question is what SHOULD I be doing with this linen....yes ok...obviously stitching on it...lol. Surely someone can help me with my fear! Is there a particular linen type that would help me overcome this problem?
Just in case it makes a difference - my favourite evenweave is jobelan 28ct.
