May Your Sorrows
Here is another one of my "oldies". This one was done in 2002 while we were living in Omaha. It was stitched on 14 count oatmeal aida. I used 2 strands(loop method) of DMC floss. I got the pattern out of a magazine called "Cross Quick" from Apr/May 1989. Our library here has a room where all the books are a quarter. I found this treasure there and best of all the lady informed me that all the magazines were free!!
I managed to find three issues of this particular magazine. I have the premier issue, Feb/Mar 1989, Apr/May 1989. The best part was that they all were in great condition. My mother while going garage sale shopping she found an old issue of "Cross Stitch & Country Crafts" from Sept/Oct 1988 and bought it for me for fifty cents. All of these magazines have some great patterns to stitch.
