Miniature Sampler - Cathy Bussi

Design: Miniature Sampler
Designer: Cathy Bussi (freebie kit from an old issue of Cross Stitch Collection)
Threads: DMC
Fabric: 18 count aida, antique white

The sharp eyed among my blog readers will have spotted the date on this. For those of you who don't read blogs through a magnifying glass, the shameful secret is that I stitched this in 1996. Yes, thirteen years ago, and only now have I done something with it! Okay, to be fair, it was a little small to frame but still...

It was a trifle fiddly to turn into a pinkeep, but I managed, and I think it looks very cute! Not really 'me' these days, but it's pretty. Perhaps when The Tot can be relied upon not to stab herself with the pins, she can have it for her bedroom, which is very pink!

I'm pretty sure we all have things we stitched eons ago and have yet to finish-finish! Good for you for taking the plunge.
