Ghost from the past

Look what my Mom's found!
One of my first attempts in cross-stitch. Back then (my guess, about 20 years ago) I knew nothing about DMC or Aida or linen or stitch-count... This was some design from a German Burda magazine stitched on what I could found - napkins set. I stitched 2 over 4 (result is 14 ct.) and everything was strategically placed. I am proud of myself :)
Need to wash and iron them. I may even use them as intended.


  1. Wow! You did a great job. No one would EVER know it was your first project!

    I love that you will use them. We SHOULD use our stitching, not just lock it away in the drawer or cupboard.

  2. So charming! I love hand stitched linens. My great grandmother stitched on everything. I can still see my pillowcases with the little ladies on them. I wish I still had them.
