Over the River from Jeannette Douglas Designs.

Jeannette says,

For this piece the theme was ” Over the River and Through the Woods” – it was a great theme and as you know got to use some of my favourite colours. Once I had completed the main sampler I thought as a grandmother one may like to put the grandchildren on the piece as a great little way to include family on a stitched piece. Therefore the instructions will read for both pieces.

An embellishment package includes all the silk threads and all the buttons and charms needed to complete the piece.

This design is stitched in luxurious silk. Many “specialty” stitches are used – there are diagrams and written instructions for all of them, making this design approachable – if you have patience (and Google), your initial skill level with specialty stitches will improve with each section!
