Stitch Maynia 2016 - Day 11 - Love Tapestry - Historical Sampler Company - 11.05.16

If you haven't heard of Maynia before please see my post from 1st May - don't want to repeat myself everyday and bore everyone..

My day 11 project is Love Tapestry from the Historical Sampler Company

Here is the picture of the finished design:

I am stitching this on the canvas included in the kit using the provided wools.

Here's the picture of the progress I made today:

And here's a picture of the back so you can see better what I've stitched.

And straight away with this piece I am reminded why I don't like printed tapestry canvas.  The straight line borders round the edges are out of line straight away.  There is a paper pattern of the design as well so I think I will be working from that rather than the printed design.  

Keep stitching and smiling

Nice start and great idea. I tend to stitch that way on the printed canvases as well.

At least they put a printed chart in! I used to stitch on printed canvas all the time until I discovered cross stitch!

Heather said...

Pretty design nice start :). Ive never stitched on preprinted but I can see how annoying it could be

I've never tried printed canvas exactly for the reason you stated. It'd drive me nuts!!! Love (haha) this pattern though. xox

Cathy said...

I don't like printed canvas for the same reason, but I also don't like stamped cross stitch. It's a lovely piece though so I'm glad it came with a printed guide.

Lovely piece! I've never tried printed canvas, but I can see how it could get very frustrating.

Sweet! I have stitched this design and it's one of the few that I have dared have framed and hanging on my walls :)
