Close up of Rainbow Sampler


Close up of Rainbow Sampler

I've been adding some pictures to Flickr of my finished cross stitching. This was a stamped design that had both crewel and x-stitch which I did over 20 years ago. I learned how to do some of the embroidery stitches from the instructions and I had no idea if I was doing them correctly.

so sweet! Is that embroidery? It must taken a long time to make.

Fiona, crewel uses embroidery stitches and wool thread. I don't remember how long it took to do but I know it was quite awhile. Lately, I've been doing more simple projects because they don't take as long. :)
