Welcome to the Porch – Where wasting time is considered time well wasted. This cross-stitch design has a calming effect and will hopefully transport you to another place and time. A place that you find soothing and relaxing.
General Information: Stitched using 2 threads of floss (from the same shank) over 2 threads of fabric. A total of 11 colors of Weeks Dye Works Dinky-Dyes hand-dyed cotton floss were used in the model.
Fabric: Stitched on 28ct “Dapple” Cashel Linen by Picture This Plus.
Stitch Area: 170w X 150h
Stitch Count: 168w X 148h
Design Area: 12″w X 10-1/2″h. (Purchasing 1/6 of a yard will work sufficiently and will allow for a minimum selvage of 3″ on all sides).
NOTE: It is highly recommended that you stitch the design in the Weeks Dye Works hand-dyed cotton floss due to the lovely variegation of the colors, however, Sullivans, DMC, and Anchor comparable colors are also provided. Please keep in mind if using a comparable floss that your finished piece may look different.
