Guest Artist: She Stitches Like Albert Einstein

My friend Melanie is a cross-stitch genius! Just look and these 2 beautiful hearts she has cross-stitched using hand-dyed Rainbow Rich and Salt Water Taffy 6 Stranded Floss from Artfabrik. They measure about 2" across. Here is her interpretation of the stitching: The fabric is a 32ct linen (32 threads per inch), and I stitched over 2 threads, so there are 16 stitches per inch. Each heart has a stitch count of 35 x 35; 35/16 = 2.2" for each heart. 

Not sure what that means but the woman is brilliant! All she is lacking is Albert Einstien's hairdo and she would qualify as a stitching rocket scientist. Thank you for sharing your work with us Melanie!

Beautiful stitchery and the colors really stand out on the black. I can't go higher than 18 count, my eyes can't take all those small holes.
