A Maryland Inspiration
Well, I finally got my camera up and running -- not my old camera -- had to buy a new one! Now I have to figure out how to take decent pictures with it. As I promised, here is a picture of my stitched design "A Maryland Inspiration".
And here is a close up of the cartouche detail.
Now I have to take it to the framer and select an appropriate frame. I am not going to mat it -- even though it is stitched on 40 ct. linen, it is already a large sampler (21" square).
The linen I used is 40 ct. Lakeside "Vintage" Light Examplar, with a combination of Belle Soie, HDF and GAST fibers. Stitches used are cross, over one, satin, Smyrna Cross, Eyelet, Closed Herringbone and Queen Stitch. Well, I hope you like it and will want to purchase it when I have the charts printed. Please leave comments so I will know if this is something you like or have suggestions. Thanks so much.
