All of my designs are done by me and are inspired by past centuries' primitive paintings, antique samplers, Pennsylvania Dutch Fraktur, and other kinds of olde time primitive arts that I, personally, like so much. These are not computer-generated cross stitch images and are strictly based on my own research of various historical folk art.

Here's my feedback: this is lovely.
