|November - Joyful World SAL|
Since I have a finish, I also have a start: A Spot of Autumn by The Drawn Thread.
It's a small, but very lovely, design at 52 x 52 stitches. I had the called for 36 ct. Edinborough linen in Summer Khaki in my stash, but this is the design I'm trying out the Sullivans floss in place of the DMC.
The cross stitching on this 36 ct linen calls for only one strand of floss, so it's hard to compare how it lays. In my stitching so far - which is only the tree structure shown above - I'd have to say the Sullivans feels a little bit smoother than DMC. The leaves I've stitched with Gloriana, Autumn Arbor. There's nothing smoother than silk. If I could stitch only with silk, I'd be a very indulged and happy stitcher!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
