Strawberry Shortcake Take 1

A wee bit of progress on Strawberry Shortcake.  I am really liking the 40 count so far.  Working with 1 thread I don't have to worry about making sure the threads lay correctly on the fabric, and as VegasJilly puts it, the look is "crisp."  Seeing the fabric in between the stitches on 28 count or 32 count always did bug me.  So far on this fabric you cannot see that. 


This is my needlework bag.  Vera Bradley.  LOVE it.


In peace, love, and stitches,
Danielle

I'm scared to try 40 ct! I'll have to monitor your progress so I will be less afraid. Cute bag!
