This is my first experience stitching on 28 ct linen over 2. I love how easily the needle and floss slide right through! This is a gift for my daughter, which I don't want her to see until it is finished, so when she is home, I switch over to the Hen on Nest for my mom or the Christmas ornaments. It has some faint printed background of the Eiffel Tower. The colors are all in brown and sepia tones. I am almost done stitching the man's hair. He is leaning down to kiss a woman.
