About the kitchen cross stitch patterns
You should be able to stitch each of these designs in 8 to 10 hours. They’re made up of whole cross stitches with some backstitch and French knots. We’ve stitched ours on to Zweigart 14-count white aida (measuring 18x15cm or 7x6in per design).
This design was originally published in Cross Stitch Crazy magazine, issue 189.
