LJT Part series Autumn sampler 6

7th Sep 2021

Part 6 of my Autumn sampler series and an adorable little squirrel for you to stitch.

If you are just stitching these for cards I have chosen to add, on the simulated picture, an additional green outer border for you, as I think it completes the design.  Obviously this is different to the chart for the complete sampler.

I have to say I am really pleased with these designs and I hope you are all enjoying stitching them.

Happy stitching and take care,...
