~ tiny little x’s ~

....can you believe it?
I am cross stitching again ~
With the help of my very low vision reader glasses,
I am able to work those little stitches again!
Although I am working on a large count linen ~ 20 count to be precise...

The linen was purchased last year at a quaint little shop called 
Hodge Podge, located in Strasburg, PA ~ 

It is a beautiful cream colored linen, that I have overdyed a bit for an old look.
The cartouche has the date 1821 and the name Hannah in progress of being stitched both over one with 2 strands of cotton and also over 2 with 2 strands of the same cotton.

This will have a basket of embroidered florals and leaves around it,
just like an early sampler from days gone by ~

~ Pattern coming soon ~

Blessings from the Farm
