Last Friday I wrote about a variation of the houndstooth. I used it for this card. There was some space left at the border of my sampler, so I added the houndstooth. I used perle 8 for the houndstooth and perle 12 for the upright cross stitch.
The border of my sampler was finished and I could start experimenting with the stitches. This is the magic chain, which I finished with pistil stitches. Then I made a whipped wheel in the swirl.
