This one has already made its rounds on the internet, but I'll go ahead and post it anyway. 🙂
Stitch Count: 378 x 150
The model was stitched on 36 ct. Vintage Light Examplar by Lakeside Linens, and the threads used are by The Gentle Art and Crescent Colours:
Piney Woods (2 or 3 skeins)
Espresso Bean (2 or 3 skeins)
Root Beer Float
All of the wording, with the exception of "Cain and Abel" on the first block, is done over 1 thread of linen.
I so enjoyed the designing of this particular piece, as it's been one I've wanted to do for a long time. It's nothing like I had planned, but I don't mind. Maybe one of these days I'll have a design turn out as I pictured it in my head!
ETA: Miss Margaret is my hero for stitching almost the entire model in about 10 days. Margaret, you astound me! If you want lots of inspiration for stitching samplers, head over to her blog (and see her precious kitty, Mia). 🙂
Also be sure to visit Nicole's blog too! Her stitching photos leave me drooling.. she helped me out with the model as well!
