12 Houses - The Drawn Thread

12 Houses Sampler
The Drawn Thread
Stitched on recommended fabric using DMC threads

I finished this today. I have stitched it for an old friend of mine who will be moving house later this month. It was an enjoyable stitch, apart from the chain stitch on the right hand side, which I found difficult to make even! Off to the framers now.

Thank you for looking.
