Wedding Card For Rowyn

Remember I did some secret stitching a few weeks back? Well, it was a wedding card for Rowyn and as she has now received it I can show you the photos. The design was taken from issue 5 of Mary Hickmott's Cross Stitch Gallery. I used DMC threads and stiched it on 32ct DMC linen. I think the colour would be B5200, but I'm not too sure.




Here's the design made up into the card to which I added peel off stickers. I have to give credit to Keith for actually mounting the design into the card, he's so much better at it than I am.



I hope the weather keeps fine for you Rowyn, but I'm sure you'll have a lovely day whatever happens.

Many, many thanks for all your wonderful comments on my Daffodil sampler. It was also lovely to see some new readers leaving comments for the first time. I have now decided what my next Prairie Schooler stitch will be, it's the Harvest Village from the Harvest Time chart, which arrived yesterday. I just need to decide what fabric I'm going to stitch it on, 32ct Jobelan or 36ct Edinburgh linen, and then sort out the threads.
