Freebie: Cead Mile Failte

This design is "100,000 Welcomes" in Gaelic - topped off with a knotwork border. Feel free to select your own thread and fabric colours - the chart is in green but you could use your favourite colour. The border is actually one long rope crossing over and under itself so you can stitch it in just one colour or  follow the rope and use a variegated colour. You could also add shading at the intersections to show shadows where the ropes cross. The possibilities are endless - a bit like the knotwork!

Lindsay stitched this version in a subtle turquoise variegated thread.
