I like the Lynxlace oak leaf pattern. So I wanted to imitate it. My mother's house has oak leaf cast iron porch posts. Here's one:

and here's the drawing from it not done from the photo but freehand looking out the window. The idea here is to make it no more than 12 inches wide so I can work it longways in the frame. This can be next after I complete the leaf pattern project which I've been hanging fire on because of being lazy about shrinking and ironing the material.

Also thanks for liking it. I'm pretty taken with it myself.

Good advice, thank you. Yes, that latest "sampler" I am working on has too narrow borders and it's a pain to work close to the edges - but the wrong dimensions to put in the frame where I could get at them (since I didn't have it when I started the piece).

I really like your pencil drawing. When you set up to work, be sure to add enough empty space around the design. Empty space can always be eliminated after all the stitching is done. But borders too narrow can't be fixed. I made that mistake myself.
