Square 10

I love the look of white on white embroidery; I think this and this are particularly stunning. I wanted to do something from this book, but the designs were too big for a square inch. Instead I decided to replicate some of the eyelet lace from this sampler, which I once made for a friend's wedding. Of course, being too lazy to go find the leaflet, I just winged it. There are five eyelets, with the center one having twice as many stitches, and four stitches that are a variation of a smyrna cross stitch (or tied long stitch). The design is framed with large cross stitches.
