A NEW series, Souvenirs of the Heart. This series will be places that I visit that hold special places in my heart. To kick off the series we have Autumn in Amana. This design was stitched as a souvenir of my visit for a stitching retreat in the beautiful, quaint colonies, in my home state, Amana IA. Design is tiny if you want it to be....the model is worked on 28 count even weave over 1 thread. Finished size is a mere 2 3/8" x 3". You can certainly work the design on larger counts if you so choose. Stitch count - 67 wide X 87 high
