Wessex Stitchery

Mini Sampler

Yesterday I completed this - only 6x9cm but it took several days,
stitching with Caron Wildflowers variegated thread.

The centre flowers are a design called Pembroke, in Gay Eaton's book, 'Wessex Stitchery'.
The outer patterns are my own, done randomly and copied at the opposite edge.
This technique is new to me.
The history of the stitching is interesting - the patterns are challenging - working on finer weave than usual I need a magnifier - I think I'll try another piece!
