This simply framed but elegant piece 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 variegated 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 plexiglass.
It measures 10 inches square. The stitched image is 5.75 inches square.
