I have fallen in love with this vintage cross stitch pattern called Mary Wigham Forever. It was originally stitched in 1790 and it has stood the test of time - nearly 220 years! I think the colours would look nice in my home. I found it via Chookyblue, then via The Cross Stitcher then onto www.needleprint.blogspot.com It is a stitch-a-long project and I think there are 9 installments for the pattern, of which I have 5 so far.
I plan to work it on 18 count cream Aida cloth - I am afraid my eyes are not good enough to do it on linen. I may have to take a quick spin to Mt.G to get the cloth and cottons so I can start it on the weekend.
