Vivacious Violets

This project is called "Vivacious Violets" and was designed by Virginia Douglas. It was published in the August 1997 issue of Cross-Stitch & Needlework magazine.

It was stitched on 14 count Natural Aida and is roughly 6 x 5. The stich count is 95 x 75. There are no fractional stitches, just full cross and back stitches. The design called for Kreinik blending filaments and #8 braid, but not having any on hand, I used just the DMC cotton floss.

This design was quick, easy, and fun to stitch!!
