Beautiful Princess Diana Cross Stitch Design from Teresa Gil

 Another amazing design from Teresa Gil. This one is based on the dress princess Diana wore on her visit to Thailand in 1988. The colours are so pretty and this design will be easy to stitch. I think an enthusiastic beginner could attempt this with no trouble. Teresa loves half stitches but there are not too many and also some sparkly threads and some beads to make the finished sampler even prettier.
 Princess Diana is wearing the dress the design is based on.
 I have started my cross stitch and am using my favourite 14ct Aida in white.
Teresa charts her own designs and then stitches them herself. So you know she has already found any problems and sorted them out before she releases a chart. Unlike some computer generated charts that no one has ever test stitched and can be almost impossible to stitch.
I am no good at links but if you want to buy this design just google  Teresa Gil cross stitch designs.
 Remember this Teresa Gil design? The Queen in her Coronation robes, it was my challenge for last year but I think only took 8 months to complete. The Diana sampler should take less than half that time. I will give regular updates.
As for William and Kate-I was becoming so bored with the wedding dress stitching I was only too happy to pack it away for now (forever? who knows). For now I am happy with Diana and my pink threads.

  2. I know you say it looks easy but it all looks too difficult for me. Looking forward to hearing how it progresses and if there are further developments on the wedding dress.
