What was your inspiration?
An Eva Rosenstand kit - I think it may still be available in some needlework shops and via the internet..
What are you most proud of?
I'm proud of the fact that I completed this, then bought more linen and floss and made it again for a wedding present for friends.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It won't take you long, as it's not at all complicated. The only thing is, it's quite close work as it's fine linen (can't remember what count) and the cross stitches are done in the usual way over two threads. There are no split colours and, as far as I can remember, no partial stitches - or, at least, if there are, very few.
