Maureen's Magnum Opus
The subtle blending of the various natural fibers (DMC cotton floss, Gentle Art Sampler Threads, Weeks Dye Works overdyed cottons, Australian Gumnut overdyed silk fibers), the harmony of one-over-one cross-stitches and single and double eyelet stitches, and the application of a premium imported Scottish Glenshee linen truly affords an exquisite and charming heirloom sampler for that special friend. The execution of your fine stitching skills ........... "Lily & Laurel" is certain to provide numerous hours of stitching pleasure. Its attractive presentation on this kit cover provides a unique massive molding for this delicate needleart design, certain to provide the focus on this attractive sampler measuring an unusual size of 14 1/4" x 4 1/2" of stitchery. The frame is a vintage collection from Italy, and provides a unique bit of character to this needleart creation.
My admiration of fine detail and exquisite, but subtle, floss shading has been combined to afford you this charming motif sampler wrought on a most appropriate 28-count unbleached Glenshee 100c3, fine linen. Its creation of finesse is conceived with my unparalleled stitch approach of "one-over-one". The fine detail resulting from this technique of needleart is truly addictive, and yields such a fine quality heirloom to be enjoyed by our loved ones for years.
