I am working on this stitch challenge after many months. Somehow got caught up in projects, time just flew away. Going through the files found this stitch could be an easy and swift one to work on. The working of this stitch is on Queenie’s blog
Started the sampler with basic double cross stitch in single perle cotton thread. Followed it with the stitch worked in two colours. The basic cross stitches are worked large and the upright crosses are worked smaller than them in the third row. In the fourth sample, the upright crosses are worked larger than the cross stitches. In the last sample, the stitches are shorter and wider.
