What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use a laying tool. It will go so much faster for you!

What is a "laying tool"?

09/28/2013 Flag

It is a smooth, usually sharp tool used for helping keep your stitches flat, smooth and parallel. It makes stitching like I did on this piece much easier and faster to complete.

how do we get the patterns to the very nice stuff here

Thank you for the compliment! This particular pattern was in a magazine I had, but it's been a lot of years since I finished this. I'm cleaning out my stitching closet probably this weekend - I'll try to find it and see if I can tell you where this one came from. Sorry I don't know off the top of my head!

I found the magazine for this one. It is the April 2006 issue of The Cross Stitcher Magazine. FYI
