This lovely pattern is featured in the Cross Stitch
magazine Oct-Nov 1991. The designer is Darla
Fanton. She has placed 2 Southern Belle patterns
in this issue. I changed the color that she had listed
because I didnt want it to be that dark. The color
I chose is DMC 334. You know what I did. I was so
anxious to start on this pattern that I mistakenly cut
11ct Aida instead of the regular 14ct. I stitched half
of the pattern before I realized that mistake. Oh well.
Anyway the pattern is going to get really close to the
edges..... Thats a scary thought. But as long as it fits
then I wont worry about it. Its going to be bigger than
I want however I can live with that also.
This pattern has been quick to stitch up
so far. I hope that tree is the same. You know these
days I just have to make mistakes.
Everything went okay until I started stitching up the tree.
I must have gotten tired at that point. The moral of this
story is - dont stitch when you are sleepy.
