Stitching One Over One


This is the upper left corner of "Simplicity Goodness Truth," a design from Heart's Content. I tried a one-over-one piece a few weeks ago when I did the little ornament from Follow the Leader, and I liked how the tiny stitches looked. I deliberately left my thumb in the picture for scale. This is fun, and I know the final piece is going to look great. I'm really glad I have a magnifying lens!

You're braver than I am! I have to wait until I get my new glasses before I can attempt over 1. I love the look of it.

Ooh whee - that is tiny (nice fingernail!) I could use a magnifier for that, though I don;t seem to need it generally.
