festonsteek

Zo, de festonsteek uit het 21-ste deel van Jookies pronkrol is af. Op naar de maassteek. 
Ik blijf me verbazen dat werken op 16 draads linnen me nog lukt.

I finished the blanket stitch as part of the 21-rst part of Jookies pronkrol. Now on with a stitch used for darning.
I am surprised that I can still work on this very fine linen.

What is a pronkrol? Google translate did not even have a guess? With the stitching around the piece, it doesn't look like a long roll. It is very pretty.

I loved the sampler yesterday from 1871. It is in amazing shape for being nearly 150 years old!

Take care,

@Susan it is a techniques sampler or long sampler. In former days girls learn different sorts of techniques and at school al those small samplers were put together.
