"Egyptian Sampler" by Teresa Wentzler (Cross Stitch)
Finished Cross Stitch Project - "Egyptian Sampler" by Teresa Wentzler I'll start this blog with my main project for the past two years, which I completed in January 2012. Teresa Wentzler is my favorite cross stitch designer. Her designs are beautifully intricate and colorful, and they include specialty stitches and bead work. This particular design, "Egyptian Sampler", has gold and black bead work and many different Egyptian motif panels. It uses 59 different colors of floss (two skeins of some colors), so make sure you are stocked up before you start stitching! It also uses Kreinik #4 braid in #002V (vintage gold), which can be tough to find. The finished project is 14.25" x 11.5" (28-count linen, stitched over two threads), and I just bought a group-buy coupon to try my hand at framing! I will post pictures when it is framed and wall-ready.

In the future, I will try to have sequential images of my projects as I work on them so you can see how the stitches fill in the picture as it is completed, but I just had to post a picture of this one because it really is my favorite piece ever.
