its a start!

I have started the stitcheries!
yay!
using just one colour for the stitcheries, 
DMC 814
(I was given a huge cone of this a few years ago)

here it is,
with a normal DMC winder to show the size.
A friend gave it to me in 2012, after having it for a couple of years herself,
she felt that she wouldn't use it, and knew I did a lot of redwork stitching back then,
(and still do)...
so wonder how many more years I'll get out of it?
and I've used heaps of it already!
