That is how UFOs happen, isn't it? You change gears and pick up something else, and lo! A new UFO. But, rather than the new English paper piecing project that I am really dying to start, I convinced myself to work on this instead:
This cross stitch and petit point kit is from Le Bonheur des Dames in France. If you look you will see they have a ton of tempting projects! This one is from a series of twelve monthly samplers. Although this is the first one I have started, the other eleven are in my stash!
This is a UFO that I began some time around 2003-4, but the fine stitching was just beyond me at that point. It is 32 count even weave. The cross stitch is over two threads, and the petit point over one. I picked it up again last year, during my Year of the UFO, and it was much easier. I've been working it on and off ever since. Now that it is my only counted thread project, I have a feeling it will go faster!
At least until my fabrics arrive...
