This simply framed sampler is stitched by hand using the counted cross stitch technique. It is done on 100% cotton, #18 Aida cloth (18 squares per inch). 2 strands of deep blue cotton thread cover each square with an "x" to complete the design.
The piece is then cleaned and blocked, and the edges frayed for a decorative touch. It is backed with acid free paper and mounted between two pieces of UV resistant glass.
It measures 5 x 7 inches. The stitched image is approximately 2.5 x 4.25 inches.
