Day #4 - A Paris Kiss

I got a little behind in the Challenge after I got my cast off, but I was finally able to stitch yesterday.  My next project is "A Paris Kiss" as a gift for my daughter.  She has been to Paris twice and her room is decorated with photos and figurines of the Eiffel Tower.  Hopefully, the next time she goes to Paris, she'll get a kiss just like this!

This is the first time I have stitched on 28-ct linen, stitched over 2 threads, instead of the usual 14-ct Aida.  I am being very careful; no frogging for me!  This is part of the man's head.  The finished size will be 11" x 15".

That's a lovely kit and a fabulous start, I hope you enjoy stitching it.
I've done a couple of Vervaco sepias and they're lovely to stitch!
