Below is the cover of the book I'm using. I've owned it for years (the publication date 1973) and I've done several of the designs over time. I did the violet wreath for Anne years ago on 18 count. That means 18 squares per linear inch on the canvas. The tiny stitches were hard then for my eyes, and would be difficult now without magnification.
Last night I began summer. The left hand page shows the working chart and the right hand page an idea of the finished piece. I'm calling them by the names of the seasons but they are not presented as such in the book. In fact there are more wreaths included that would be suitable too. And birds, and sprigs of flowers. It is a beautiful collection of Danish designs.
It is satisfying to finish a piece that has waited so long for my attention. And makes me quite happy to be moving along on my plan of the 4 seasons set.
thought you'd like to see how I work. I prop my pattern on my music stand and fix it at a good height for my sofa. Then it just takes a quick glance over my specs to check my stitch placement. Works great, leaving my hands free for the work and saving time juggling the pattern.
