Introducing Gisela

Many of the Vierlande samplers we see were worked in black. However, some are polychrome, so I don't think we need keep our appetites on strict colour-controlled diets. This is Gisela from the new Vierlande II motif album + 10 samplers download which will be released shortly. Hot off the needle, it is a day's project. It can be worked in a square format, or take off the corners and you have a circular piece which would be a lovely topper for a gift box. I chose these colours because they reminded me of those lovely embroidered loden jackets children wore in the 50s when there was a passion for all things Austrian, including zithers. And if you are a lover of monochrome, you can simply pick your own colour to work this design.
