I'm now stitching on "America" by Blackbird Designs. The cover model was stitched on 10 count Betsy Ross linen which I do not have in my stash. So I decided to stitch it on a piece of regular linen that I do have in my stash. I chose to use 32 count Exemplar by Lakeside Linens. I ended up changing a few colors to more suit the linen. Those cover model pictures on patterns never seem to match "real life" do they? Oh well. That's why I have a whole set of DMC to pick and choose from. And so far, it is a joy to stitch; great colors, easy pattern, and NO confounded confetti stitches!
