Very bad headaches. Not much relief time for stitching. But here's the sweetest little mouse that I did manage to stitch up. This is from a 1993 issue of Cross Stitch and Country Crafts. Part of a family of mice dressed in sort of Dickens era clothes. I was browsing old issues in search of something else entirely when she caught my eye. I'll figure out how to finish her later.
It's rainy today and I didn't have quite enough light. I also did this with the macro setting on my camera. I just read about that. If I felt better, I would have tried more options, but I think you can see her. The macro setting really shows up the poor coverage with 2 strands of floss on this 14 count Aida. It doesn't look so sparse in person. This Aida is so soft. It's another of Miek's hand-dyed samples. I'm not sure what brand it is, but it's lovely to stitch with.
