Great use of the warp/weft count in IL019 to to accentuate the lines of the very linear counted work. Great designs, great composition, and a killer finish. And you\'ve proven that countwork works on this linen weight. Thanks!

I\'ve done Blackwork before and have great respect for anyone who does this much of it on a linen shirt. Absolutely Beautiful!

Lovely stitching. So precise! As an embroiderer myself, I know how long this took and the effort represented!
