Irish Sampler

My holiday cross stitch is completed and framed.

It is the Irish Sampler by Nostalgic Needle, designed by Sharon Cohen.
Stitched with DMC threads on raw linen.

I enjoyed learning some new stitches for this one, particularly the queen stitch for the large flowers under the letters.  Now to find a home for it, at the moment it's sitting on top of the piano until I decide.  I'm wondering about beside my woodland sampler in my bedroom ... what do you think?

Wishing you a beautiful weekend, Wendy xx

  9. Hi Wendy, your cross stitch's are so beautiful & detailed, just lovely. Love the linen you have done it on too. I think it looks gorgeous where-ever you hang it or even sitting on the piana looks lovely. Do you frame them yourself or have them done?? Jenny has great tutorials for framing on her blog.
