Birthstone - QS Garnet

So before I continue with my Shore Line Village, I thought I would get started on a project that I have been wanting to get a move on for a very long time!  It is the Birthstone collection by Rachel Anderson.  It is the QS versions of all 12.  I have started with January - Garnet.

I started on 22Count and tried 1 over 1 and was not really happy with the coverage,


So I decided to start over and stitch it 2 over 1 on the 22 Count, and was much happier with  the coverage,



So that is where I have left it and now I am off to pick up Shore Line Village!

Great Start! Love those colors.

I feel ya...I know HAED recommends 25ct, but I don't like the coverage of 1x1 on 25, so I go with 28. Whatever works best for you is the best!

Great start! Definitely a good choice doing 2 over 1

Lots of stitching. Great Start. I did oct opal and have 3 others but don't know if I will stitch them. Good luck.

Great new start! I agree the coverage looks much better with two threads.
