Cross Stitch Mania

Haven't been knitting much lately, but started on some cross stitch projects. I chose two Quaker sampler motifs and made them into a biscornu.

In my naive enthusiasm I also ordered a sampler kit from Permin. It's a reproduction of a German sampler from 1826, the same year The Last Of The Mohicans was published, which I am reading now. I would wager for ten pale face scalps that I'll be finished with the book first, as this is quite a big project. I love the motifs on this sampler, they look so rich and oriental.
