The pattern for this wedding sampler appeared in May/June 1986 issue of Cross Stitch & Country Crafts magazine. I stitched this as a gift for my son Frank and his wife. It was stitched on dirty linen and the border uses 1/16" cream ribbon in the stitching. The finished size: app 10 1/2 x 14 1/2. It was framed in a cordovan colored wood frame under glass. The border design itself serves as the mat for the piece. It is probably one of the most intricate designs I have worked on. Besides the cross stitching, the border has a very narrow ribbon woven into the design.
