Wedding Sampler - part II



I managed to finish the wedding sampler last weekend before our trip to Cape Breton.  I wrapped it carefully in tissue paper before delivering it to Emily, who was both surprised and delighted.  

I was very pleased with the results, as I improvised the pattern with the aid of some graph paper.  The design is stitched onto the knitted square using the technique known as Swiss darning.

It made a pleasant change to hand deliver a knitted gift, as so many of the gifts that I've knitted during the past year or so have been posted to family and friends.
