The design is by Rozen Lucas for DMC. Stitched with Anchor threads on a scrap of cream 25 ct evenweave (cotton?), two over two.
I loved this one the minute I saw it. Back then, I didn’t do much cross stitch, I was more like a patchwork addict. What’s more, I couldn’t locally buy the DMC threads needed. Nowadays thread conversion is easy thanks to the internet. I kept the torn out pages in my project folder all those years.
Recently, I put this project on my to do list for October but after preparing the fabric and collecting the threads a mysterious power (the one all crafters know) forced me to start it on the spot. That was a quick one, only six days of stitching. Not whole days, mind you, only the odd hour in-between other things. I seem to get a certain routine cross stitching. 😉
I think it deserves a nice little frame.
