Blast from the Past- Cross-Stitch Plus Sept '92, Children from the '20's Sampler

Cross stitch designs with detailed fashions on people with no faces was a sort of signature of mine, back in the day. I'm still fond of this sampler (combining two loves) that appeared in Cross-Stitch Plus in September of 1992.

I don't know if this one is down in the basement in a box somewhere, or if I gave it away. The colors are dated now, but I still like the design.

I used magazines and catalogs from the era for the clothing designs

I love the old patterns and designs. As far as the dated colors are concerned, they may be dated now, but will probably come back in style. Everything always does...
