I have completed these cross stitch pictures and wanted to share them with a wider audience.
The first one is
the Eileen Bennett Irish Sampler. I started it too far down and had to leave out the bottom of the pattern. It was done on 28 count linen with floss
The last picture is from a pattern called the Rose Sampler done on linen with flower thread. I think I picked the wrong color for one shade of thread. There should be more shading. The sampler would be nice to work with other colors on different shades of linen.
Thank you for looking
