Welcome to my first SAL or Stitch Along if this is new to you. (*Please let me now if you are having trouble downloading the image. Leave a comment and I can email a PDF to you.)
Here is the drawing in its original form still in my notebook.
And here is the drawing ready for you to copy and stitch along with me. Another copy is available on a new page I have added to my blog : "SAL". It is where I will be posting my progress and YOURS if you choose to share your work. I hope you will.
Here is how I got my pattern started. I am using a prewashed cotton/linen blend fabric. The pieces are TORN to 14" x 11", then pressed. I work in hand and I don't finish the edges. I drew the design with a fine point Uni-ball pen. It is my favorite for pattern drawing.
Here is my palette. I am stitching with 2 strands of DMC cotton floss.
