The first step: Floss!

08 Feb

So I found myself at AC MOORE…. This is what 26 DMC Floss Colors look like on paper!

  Yes yet another project underway! I took a photo of my sister’s cat and with a little cropping magic on my KG-chart LE and time I have a new pattern plotted. I am calling it Jack-Jack, the well read cat.

I am going to have to use 28 Count Needlework Fabric for this project- a first for me. I have mostly used 14 count in all my projects, or lower. Today I bought the supplies. The nice thing about a higher count number is that less floss needs to be used. However The fabric is a bit more expensive, depending on the brand you buy. I like Charles Craft’s Monaco 28 count.

It is quite a detailed picture- this new project! Hence the 26 colors of floss! But I will share alot more with you about that, including the color choices I made, and the cropping process.

Please stay tuned!!!
