Astoria

This design is from The Gift of Stitching magazine, 2010. It is by Virginie Lykins.  She is a collector of antique patterns.
She charted this antique Berlin wool work pattern.
I stitched it on 28ct. Linen using silk threads. I had thought about making it into a cushion, but hubby thought it should be framed and now is hanging in the dining room.

Sorry the pic really doesn't do it justice.
