*NEW* East or West
This little design was inspired by a couple of folky old hooked rugs, my childhood home next to a family dairy farm, and the forest that surrounds my now-home. It was fun from the first mark in my computer software to the last stitch crossed over linen. I have an inkling of a thought that it may one day also turn up as a hooked, punched, or appliqued design, but for now, let the cross-stitchers have at it!
