Not Tapestry

My sister turned 70 this year so for her birthday I made a Family Sampler to give her.  I used to do lots of cross stitch so I knew it would take a lot of time and I  started in Feb. to have it finished by her birthday in July. 

I used 32 count linen and only sewed in the middle of the day when I could see  properly.

It took me ages to work out the design; the surnames are blocked out for obvious reasons.

It looks much better ironed.
