Round Robin #27

In this Round Robin, I needed to stitch a new sampler so I can have one in circulation. It was so much fun deciding and ultimately deciding on the theme... Quaker in Nature. Meaning... A Quaker style of cross stitch using animal or plant motifs. I did a form of this one before and really liked it a lot. Here is what I stitched:

Round Robin #27
Fabric Type: Fiddler's Cloth
Fabric Color: Regular Oatmeal
Fabric Count: 14
DMC Floss Color: #550
Theme: Quaker in Nature (Plants & Animals)

Quaker - Butterfly

Quaker - Squirrel
I found the pattern online and do not know the exact name. As soon as I get that, I will update it here. It was found at Gazzette94's blog.

Heart Themed Mini Cross Stitch

Here is the heart that I stitched for the Heart Themed Mini Cross Stitch Swap. I used the chart posted on Carton-Marie's blog. She got it from a French designer's book... "Répertoire des Frises"  by Valérie Lejeune. Got to get my hands on a copy of this book. Looks like it might have a lot of fun designs to stitch.

Title: Box Hearts
Date Completed: February 28, 2015
Stitched on red 14 ct. Aida Cloth using White DMC floss
33 x 33 Stitch Count

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
