This is Carriage House Samplings, "Enchanted".
I have stitched several Carriage House Samplings projects in the past, including...1814 Butterfly Collection, Sarah Hook, Halfpenny Pasture...and have several more patterns in my stash...(Wow...I didn't realize how attracted I am to the Carriage House designs!)...and of the bunch, this little pattern has been the quickest stitch, taking about 3 weeks start to finish. (I am not a rapid needle!)
It was a very pleasant project, which I stitched on Lakeside Linen in "Dill", 40 count.
I changed the the original pattern, as you can see, replacing the date with a Bible verse that kept running through my head as I stitched, Psalms 42:1. How lucky to be able to use the same numbers as in the pattern! I just had to figure out a way to fit 'Psalms' into the small space. Abbreviating worked.
Then I added my initials...
...and was happily finished.
If you want a project you don't have to think about much and is completely relaxing, this is the pattern for you.
Pattern (at time of my purchase): $10.00
11.5" x 12" piece of Lakeside Linen, 40 ct.: $6.38
Regular ol' DMC called for in the pattern: under $2.00
