One of my latest endeavours has been creating a few pieces of cross-stitch wall art. The delightful trio of prim-style birdhouses was cross-stitched on 14ct white Mill Hill perforated paper (my absolute favorite cross-stitch material!), in soft pastel coordinating shades of dusty pink, green, yellow and blue. The thread is DMC Six Strand Embroidery Floss. The stitched area is aprox 3in by 7.5in and the completed piece is 5in by 9.5in, which allow you to frame it with a mat in the frame of your choice.
The frame as it appears above, is digitally created, to give you a basic idea on how the piece would look framed. This completed piece is NOT coming with a frame – the frame in the photograph was used only to give you an idea on how this sampler can be displayed on your desk or wall.
Stitching time: aprox. 12hrs.
