Just realised I never posted my finished ‘year-long’ project for last year. Each square represents a week, and I used a combination of techniques. Goldwork, Hardanger, blackwork, stumpwork, needlelace, drawn thread work, beadwork, embellished photography, Bargello, Assisi work, cross-stitch…. etc etc. Mostly my designs, with a couple of motifs from cross-stitch books.

Week 39: 24th September – 1st October 2013

Autumn band sampler from the book  ‘Jo Verso’s Cross stitch Year’. I did the Spring and Summer ones previously – only Winter left to do now. Looks a lot more complicated than it is. Stitched on 28 count country style evenweave. Finished size 3.5 in x 9.5 in (9 cm x 24cm)

NB – actually finished this last week, but no chance to post a photo till now!
