Post on Behalf of Maria del Valle

I continue working on MD 1660 The Unicorn Sampler. 

I'm doing the first cutwork band and I'm filling it with "dove's eye stitch". It's very slowly for to do and I need a similar tension in each of the stitches. 
Now I am seeing the unicorn with its horizontal horn!!

I love it!! I love it!!

On the other hand, I was a pleasant discovery to see that the Italian cross stitch, because as you see, it has a perfect back! 



I'm very happy with this sampler, the diagrams are perfect, and it helps me a lot. 

See you soon!
