The Stitcher's RSVP Cross Stitch Sampler Pattern
"Listen, I still want to be invited but I'm not coming."
— Most Stitchers?
I stumbled upon this meme and I just thought it was so funny. I’d never heard it before but it describes me perfectly, and maybe it describes you, too. :)
This piece is stitched on 32-count linen (that's 16 stitches per inch) with two-plies of DMC six-ply cotton embroidery floss.
Finished size of design area: 6.25"w x 5.2"h (16cm x 13cm); 100 stitches wide x 83 high on 32-count fabric
PLEASE NOTE: Most of this pattern is done in 2 plies of floss over 2 threads of linen, but the text (not the initial cap) is done in 1 ply of floss over 1 thread of linen (or, quarter stitches).
