The Arab Tent

I couldn't resist starting this one on the new HDF 40 ct canvas lite. I vowed not to do another in tent stitch unless it was on silk gauze. This is much the same as gauze, but much better because I can see the fabric. What a delight! The stitches are so tiny and even. The fabric is stiffer than Monaco, so it is not warping. I am switching between tent and continental/ vertical and horizontal directions. I am having a blast on the new fabric! I have already began planning my next HAED on this fabric (Chloris), but it is too beautiful to be so small. It will be over two, full cross, in HDF silks.
