"Blue Cross Stitch Sampler in DMC 931."

Hello,

Earlier on this week I finished the cross stitch sampler I have been working on.


I used just over two and a half skeins of DMC 931, stitching on 14 count Aida. The pattern is available from
Gazette 94 blog. One thing I did find though that on the house on the right side there are a few stitches missing on the pattern sheet .You will soon notice that they are missing, and add them in if you are stitching this pattern.  I will use this piece to test out a framers seeing my one I usually use has retired.

Now to decide what to do next.

Happy days.
Bev C

Hi Bev, sorry it had been a long time since I visited you. You made me go looking for missing stitches, but I couldn't find them :(
It looks beautiful. I used to cross-stitch - Hugs Nat

I can't see the missing stitches... I've been staring at it until it went all blurry!!!
There you have it... not a good idea for me to change careers and become a framer ;)
To me it is perfect stitching in everyway!
