The Embroiderer’s Guild of the UK publishes a magazine called “Stitch”. I subscribed for a number of years and this particular pattern is by the talented Sue Hawkins published in Issue #60, August/September 2009. It is the center part of a biscornu on page 4.
I used colour #194 in a size 5 perle cotton for the long-legged cross stitch and the tent stitches. Colour #2 in a size 5 perle cotton for the base of the rice stitch and 6 strand floss in colour #194 over this for contrast. The satin stitching is completed using 6 strands of floss in colour #2.
It was fun, easy to stitch and fast. I love how it turned out 🙂
