I finished The City Stitcher's, "Primitive Peacock Sampler" last night.
It took only three weeks. I was anticipating a longer stitching time as it was filled with Algerian Eye stitches...
Here is a good tutorial.
Also included in the design were Satin Stitches which, having been established in past posts on Riverspitter, are not my friends. So I opted to just fill the Satin Stitch area in with plain cross stitches in DMC 783... just for contrast.
My kit for this project was very simple, practically empty really...
Cost & Info
Fabric: 28 ct. Country French Latte linen, $7.63
Size: 13.5 x 19"

I used a #26 needle
I'd give this pattern a 4 out of 5 stars for fun, ease and color. Overall....recommended!
