14 count aida cross stitch fabric, DMC threads and pattern from Leisure Arts Cross Stitch Magazine, April 1989
What was your inspiration?
I love samplers because they seem doable. Each square is like a small bite of a very LARGE elephant : )
What are you most proud of?
I began this cross stitch in 1989 and completed about 3/4 of it within a few years. Then, life got in the way and I didn't pick it up again until 2010 when I decided it was time to complete the project. This is the FIRST cross stitch I ever completed and framed.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Determine a certain number of stitches you will take each day to avoid letting decades go by before completion.
