Lesson 14: Cross Stitch over one thread

Mystery Sampler c.1991 Jana P. Kerr
Needle Arts Magazine Jun 2005 - Dec 2006

Stitched on Zweigart Cream Banding with Anchor floss (1035, 1034, 1033, 681, 897, 895, 893, 888, 887, 387-ecru); DMC floss (3053); DMC ecru perle coton 8 & 12; AVAS (1714, 1716, 1011, 4622); + Silk Mori (0434)

I have purchased bellpull hardware pieces. This will be my first bellpull finishing & I hear it isn't that difficult to do : )

Thanks to all of you for leaving comments re. my tabletopper. I hope to get it entered into the Lake County Fair. If I can finish my Soweth Sampler in the next couple of days - I'd really like to get that one entered -- probably not a ribbon winner; however, I have enjoyed stitching it : )

Have a safe holiday [for those who celebrate Independence Day]. We have no special plans & may cook out.

That's a lovely project! Shall I confess that I keep visiting your blog very often, but don't get to comment? Naughty me! I was so happy to read your comment on my blog that I thought you might as well feel the same if I commented too?...
Take care, Lelia!
