Merhaba from Turkiye!
We have been in Konya, my husband hometown for almost a week now. We love it, even me surprisingly enjoy it. It's nice to be somewhere familiar. I did a lot of shopping (and will do more in the next two weeks), visited some relatives and stitched a quick project for a friend in Turkey (I will publish it in separate post). Because of those activities so I only able to start my Altius August stitch yesterday afternoon, and this is what I've got so far:
Not too bad eh for one afternoon?
It's my first experience with linen and so far I like it, the fabric is much smoother and softer compared to aida and I think it affected the way how the stitching looked.
My new qsnap that I've received from Indonesia is helping a lot but I changed my mind about making the grid. It's a pain to make a grid on 28ct, I squinted a lot and finally decided not to. Its a good thing that the design is fully covering the fabric so I will keep stitching next to another because I don't think I can count it right if I want to jump several squares.
We will see how it goes, not sure if I can stitch a lot since the lighting in my mother in law's house is not enough for stitching so I can only stitch during the day time, and during Eid we will do a lot of family visits and we also have a holiday trip to Pamukkale :)
and oh Happy 67th Independece Day for my country INDONESIA.
A friend who lives in Brussels, Belgium posted this manneken pis (the famous statue of peeing boy) on her facebook:
This August is also our 6th year anniversary, I want to share some pics from our wedding, one of them my husband was wearing similar clothes with the manneken pis boy :)
