A Stroll With The Queen
This is our newest design in our German Sampler Series: The Queen's Garden. It features many floral and bird motifs such as carnations, iris, primroses and storks that are reminiscent of what a queen would have in her private garden.
I stitched the model using Pearsall's Silks on Lakeside Linen 32 Ct. Meadow Rue, although conversions to DMC, Soie D'Alger and Needlepoint Silks are provided. The water in the fountain is stitched with the herringbone stitch, but all the rest is cross stitched over two.
We already have the next three designs in this series charted. Our goal is to release them during the next year. While you wait, enjoy stitching your way through The Queen's Garden.
