Augusta Bristol Orphanage Sampler

Augusta Bristol Orphange Sampler By Margriet Hogue of The Essamplaire
I used 40 ct Weeks Linen linen and the Paris Pure silk. The linen I love but the silk was a nightmare. It frayed easily and twisted wildly. I had to cut real short strands to work with it. It’s so soft it worked its way back out so I had to double back to secure. I highly recommend a different silk or DMC.

No Peeking ornament


Stitched these from the Just Crossstitch ornament preview and regular 2016 ornament issue. I then mounted together to make one. Design by Fern Ridge Collection.
