I used a 56 count Seraphim linen in the color Antique Lace which has a bit of a green tone. I stitched it with one strand of Soie Surfine thread.
The technique is called Assisi. You stitch the background and leave the design open so you can see the linen.
Even on that tiny of a linen it is still 3 1/2 by 10 7/8 inches.
I love the way that it turned out. I needed a piece that required just stitching and no decisions.
