Counted Cross Stitch Nora Corbett

I realize I usually write quilty content but I recently rediscovered my love of cross stitch.
I dug out an old Nora Corbett (Mirabilla) pattern to work on in the evenings as my hand work.
It is a mermaid and it is AWESOME, but daunting. 
 I am going to post this as a WIP and try to make progress.  
I, just today, came across her Christmas Courier patterns and know I have to make Prancer.

My kids used to LOVE watching the movie Prancer.  
In fact it is one of my favorite Christmas movies.  

Here is where you all come in.  
I am not a huge fan of stitching on linen.  
I prefer the even weave fabrics when possible.  
I love the look on linen but my old eyes don't do as well with it.  
I love the color of the linen but there is a Lugana that is a silvery moon that is pretty too.  
(Lugana is an even weave)

Here are the colors:

This is the one in the photo above Twilight Blue Linen

 And this is the Silvery Moon Lugana
I am going to order but need to choose.

If anyone has any other suggestions of choices and where to get them that would be helpful.

Happy Sewing

Oh they are both gorgeous. I love working on linen, but oh my eyes!

Back in the day, I was a cross stitch fanatic! Pre quilting days. I don't think I could sit still long enough to accomplish it, now. Your work is beautiful! I like the Silvery Moon best. XO
