Bee Hive - Elizabeth's Designs

Design: Bee Hive
Designer: Elizabeth's Designs
Threads: Gentle Arts Sampler Threads
Fabric: 28(ish) count linen, antique white - but not even!

This sweet little design stitched up really quickly, and I like it a lot. The only thing of note, really, is the linen I used to stitch it on. It was a scrap from my stash, of unknown origin. Although labelled as 30 count, it's actually a different count in each direction - not by much, but if you look very closely, you can see that the stitches are wider than they are tall! I think it's actually made the design look nicer - I like a nice, rounded bee hive :o) - but I'm glad I wasn't stitched a bigger project, it could have looked really strange!

I've had this occur, too. Threw off a square biscornu pattern so badly that I had to make a pinkeep of it instead. ;)
