This is my next project, The Kiss. It was a pattern I picked up on clearance at Michael's ages ago but had been too scared to start on because it is to be done on LINEN! But now that I almost have my first project done on linen, I feel up to the challenge. My friend Joy picked this one out of all my patterns and asked if I would do it so I said yes but she is well aware she may not get it years from now!

This is the fabric that I picked out to do The Kiss on. The original fabric color it called for was discontinued so I purchased this one, Cranberry Cobbler, from the Sugar Maple Fabrics website. It is a 28 count Lugana. The pattern calls for it to be stitched over two and that will be a new venture for me!

This is an update on my current project. This is being done on 25 count Jubilee. It's done over one. It's been tedious but I've enjoyed it. I was hoping to have it done this weekend but don't see it happening as I will have my niece and nephew visiting Friday and Saturday!

I know these pictures aren't the greatest but have you ever noticed how one day you can take the best pictures of your projects and then the next day you can't get any of the lighting right? Frustrating!

The Kiss is a gorgeous project and your fabric is just perfect. I struggled on evenweaves so am sticking to aida. I hope you enjoy your linen. Projects always look so much better on linen/evenweaves don't they.

Amore is moving along. Over one? OMG I'd be blind lol.

I have done The Kiss and it is really a beautiful design!! i don't see why you can't do it on aida, I did mine on 18 count aida. It was the last piece i did on aida though. After that I switched to linen & evenweave. =)

The fabric to go with it is soo beautiful! I just love SMF's!!!!
