A small Sampler

I had thought the next task in hand would be to catch up with the Lakeland needlepoint. I need natural light for this one, and as we were out all day, that was not an option for this evening.

I decided to do this little cross stitch instead. It was bought by a neighbour, but as she had never got round to stitching it, she gave it to me a few months ago. I thought I would stitch it for her, frame it and then give it back to her to enjoy. It is quite quick to stitch, and as it is made up of small motifs, it is like a continual chain of small finishes. So good for the ego!
This is what I managed to get done this evening, a bit of cross stitch, back stitch and one french knot. Such variety in such a small area.
