DUCJC Day 27

Today was another tiny beauty and I fell in love with it. Here is what it will look like...
It's called Seaside Squared from Erica Michaels. Yep I know another ocean themed piece haha. I love everything about this one. The cute little mermaid. The lighthouse. The whale. Every little piece. I also LOVE it's done on 40ct. So tiny!! Here is my progress...
See I told you little. Hope you overseas ladies can understand my US ruler. It's 2 inches but with my ignorance of the metric system I don't know how it converts....little haha.

Tomorrow is a fun snowmen piece. 4 more starts.

  1. I like all the little details too! Maybe you can give Jeremiah some homework to convert your charts to metric, ha h.

  2. This chart is adorable Katie and you've made a really good start. Thanks for adding the ruler. Luckily I'm happy working in either system, despite the European Union trying to force us to be metric! :)

  3. Cute chart and 40 ct is quite a tiny one to stitch. I can work with both measuring systems. In fact even the UK magazines mention fabric count unit as HPI -holes per inch.

  5. Lovely and oh so tiny! (I happened to be sitting next to my little sewing gauge. It looks like 2 inches is about 5 centimeters. Tiny.)

  13. Oh my, Katie, this is such a beautiful design. I love it. And it's so so tiny on the 40 ct fabric. WE have the metric system but I have centimeter and inch rulers, as for my quilting it depends on where the pattern comes from.

  15. Cute design and good for you going for 40ct again! One inch is about 2.5cm if you're interested. :)

  16. Oh that's so cute! You must have great eyesight...or a good magnifier!

  17. This is freaking adorable! The best one yet!
    I use both systems of measuring equally happily. Tend to use inches for cross stitch simply because that's how the fabric is counted. So if I'm looking at a chart I'll count two inches for every 30 squares on the chart to get a rough idea of size. Or one inch if I'm doing over one!
