When I was selecting the ornaments I wanted to stitch from this year's JCS ornament issue Plum Street Samplers Stocking really caught my eye. I decided to order the Lakeside 36 count vintage cedar plank linen so mine would look just like the model. Well, I had a tough time finding the 36 count but was able to get the 40 count in the same color. In the past, the Lakeside linen has been floppy and soft to me so I starched it before I started stitching.
I am in love with this linen. It is the perfect vintagy, blue-grey with tan undertones. I only bought a 9 x 13 cut and am wishing I had more.
Isn't it swell?! The picture just doesn't do it justice.
And here is my finish. :o)

For those of you who read this blog and might be planning to stitch this design, there is a tiny little error in the chart.
You are looking at the lower right "leg" of the star...this extra stitch shouldn't be there if you want all 4 "legs" of your star to be the same .
I hope you are enjoying a relaxing Sunday. Thank you for stopping by. I am off to stitch on the 2nd part of Mary's Sampler and watch my Panthers. :o)
