#2 RAK

As mentioned in my previous post here is the 2nd RAK that I made for Ellen.
This design is by Textile Collection and is a motif taken from a Dutch sampler.  It is stitched using the required DMC colours on 28ct linen.  My finishing of choice is a pinkeep.


I really enjoyed stitching this design, the colours are soo muted and it gives an old look and feel to it.
I hope you enjoy it Ellen.
Until next time, happy stitching.

That's a beautiful finish. With the muted colors, it looks like something stitched years ago.
