Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Heaven and Earth Designs A Long Winter's Nap, progress:


Heaven and Earth designs can be stitched on 14 count, they just turn out a lot larger and of course you'd need more strands for good coverage - and a big wall that you can step well back from. Many stitchers do them on 18 count so that they are not too large but a bit easier to see. I use a lit up magnifier, the sort you look through, to stitch with one strand on 28 count normally but the above example is 2 strands on 22 count. If you haven't already joined, the Heaven and Earth Designs message board has an absolute wealth of information and lots of examples.
By the way, I posted a picture of the pattern, spread out -

Hi I am thinking of buying this cross stitch but like comments on how hard it is - I wouldn't be able to stitch on count 25 so could it be done say on 14 count?

Love to hear from anyone.


Wonderful job, the head is so beautiful in detail. wonderful
