Geraniums and Begonias

Design - "Geranium Sampler"
Magazine - "Cross Stitch Sampler" - April 1995 issue
Designer - Janelle Marie Designs
Fabric - 28 count ivory linen
Fibers - GAST
Started - 1 March 1995
Completed - 5 May 1995

Wow, I stitched this fifteen years ago and if I remember correctly, it was the first time I'd used GAST threads.  I didn't understand about completing each stitch one at a time for the best effect, so it was a "learning sampler" in many ways.

I'm only growing one geranium this year, but I do have several begonias to share...

No tag - mystery plant

"Panorama White"
