Silhouettes in cross stitch are a decoration that is attractive in any
name. Having an old-time qnaintness, they are as much in vogue to
day as they ever were. Done in one color thread, they are especially
interest.ng to make, for cross stitch is quick to do. and each bit added
to the embro.dery shows up. These quaint scenes are attractive subjects
to work on, for one cculd so easily weave an interesting story around
them. They lend themselves not only to pictures, but are decorative as
cushions, tray cloths or insets.
