Cross stitch is a bit of a release for me...a few quiet minutes, no sewing machine, rotary cutter or iron...quick and portable (provided I have light and sadly...magnification!).
I am currently working on this design...
Feather Your Nest- With Thy Needle& Thread
DMC cotton-1 strand
28ct Cashel linen
Worked over 1 thread
Slow progress, but relaxing. Nowadays I have to enlarge the chart too...sigh...but that is okay...but what wasn't okay was the way this obviously delicious design was nibbled...hmmm...any ideas? I suppose this may have been what was meant by "Sampler"????
