SSD-C113 - Nostalgia

9” w by 7” h - 126 stitches w by 98 stitches h

This cross-stitch design of a swan on a pond with
cattails and lily pads, gives the appearance of lace
on a background color of stitcher's choice.   The
surrounding border is curved at the corners which are
embellished with roses and gives the impression of
lace decoration and edging.  The stitching is done in
white - whole and half stitches, creating a design that
even a novice could stitch.  

The model is stitched on linen to keep with the ‘old’
tradition, but aida or evenweave may be used.

DMC 6 strand embroidery floss in winter white
