These are the first few stitches of my newest project, which is one I'm designing myself using elements from old books and my imagination. The border, which will be on top and bottom, is a repeating primitive stag motif taken from Merklap Motieven en hun symboliek, written by Albarta Meulenbelt-Nieuwburg. I've used Sampler Threads in Mulberry, Apple Butter and Forest Glade. I'm tentatively calling this "Forest Song". I'm stitching this on 32 ct Chestnut Permin linen.

The body of the design will also be repeating motifs, but not in the form of a border.
