This design is done to mock cross stitch. I've done real embroidery but this design took less time, even though it is composed of small x's.
In my Jane Austen world i awake to a quiet, contemplative life of sewing and embroidery, and composing long letters to my family and friends. Donning my favourite blue dress and amber cross necklace, i take long strolls in the country under the shade of my umbrella. I linger under an ancient oak for a picnic lunch and i gaze out across the rolling grounds of my country estate, nibbling on sweet, luscious strawberries. For longer jaunts and when the weather is inclement, i nestle under blankets in my horse and carriage and the scenery hurries by..... it is a good life.
What we do and how we do it.
