Manon's Garden - Cross-stitch chart

This little French sampler is a bit of a mystery—with only an initial, the original stitcher is anonymous. I hope she wouldn’t mind me giving her a pretty French name, honouring her lovely design. It reminds me of a walled garden, full of blooming rows and fruiting pots, being visited by some birds fighting over the spoils.

This design has a stitch count of 144w x 155h and uses full crosses over two and one section of full crosses over one. In my model, I used one strand of floss over two threads of linen. It is suitable for beginners to advanced stitchers, and can be stitched linen or evenweave of any count that you prefer. Due to the over one, it is not recommended for Aida.
