The model was stitched on 36 count hand dyed Oaken linen from Picture This Plus using hand dyed cotton floss from Weeks Dye Works.
"This Winter is Past was my favorite stitch of the year. It was stitched on Picture This Plus - Oaken linen. (A new color released at Nashville market.) I decided to use Weeks Dye Works blue and brown/gray shades. I guess it was my favorite because everything just seemed to come together just right. A lot of times, I have to take floss out and replace it with another to get it right. Feels like I'm stitching each piece twice. The linen looks lighter here than it really is, because I use a white mat board backing. The splotchy color of the linen gives dimension to the sampler." Alma
