I had some questions about the stitching mechanics of this piece. This is called counted canvas work, and you begin with a blank piece of canvas and build the design based on a chart. In this case, each little block is charted out with the stitch diagram as well as the thread that is to be used. The directions are very clear and the individual blocks are well charted, so if you are thinking about doing this piece as a beginner you shouldn't have any problems.
One tip that I used (from Miss Joyce in Library Guild) was to copy the chart and separate the little blocks so that they could be attached to the canvas (as opposed to the whole sheet) for easier stitching:
I'm not sure what's next, but am happy to count this as another finish for the year!
