Ellen Chester's Quaker Hornbook...

"Quaker Hornbook"

I stitched this piece in April 2010.  Our ANG chapter will be stitching it for the June project so I stitch the class piece first so I can teach it if needed.  This linen is 36 count Permin and most of the design is stitched over two threads.  The alphabet is stitched over one threads.  I used overdyed six-strand cotton threads - "Tree Bark" from The Dye is Cast and "Cappucino" from Crescent Colors.  I made the twisted cording from some brown Impressions thread.  A fun, quick piece to stitch!
