QueetlonB Concerning Crpss-Stltch. ; " Miss J.: The' outline in the Crose-tltch design indicates where the differ, en t colors are to be placed. Cpr Instance, two shades of blue are ufed to represent the water in the swan pat- tern, with either lace or green for the river bank and the outline shows where the eolors are separated.' '" - The awans are embroidered in gray ar-a grraylPh green colors - All croee-atitch ' patterns are bo conventional that all aorts of colore are used when executing them.- "; A baskets weave material or a fahrlo wiih an even visible weave such as Bar. danger - Unen la - often need - for - cross-'' atltch designs and then the pattern la copied directly oa the material. If the cooda doee aot have aa even mesh, crone atltch ecrbn is basted over the material, the embroidery Is done over the scrim through the goods and when the work ta completed the threads of the ' scrim are pulled out. Croea-stltch designs for towels are usually made la this way. f - . - . .. Flannel Seams. , Mrs. John. A.: The seams of flannel, garments are usually hem catchsUtched. . The seam la first stitched together with one running and one back stitch, then, - pressed open and catchsUtched. ' The work la done from left to right, one Strand crossing the other In. a slanting direction. . Either a silk .or mercerized cotton can be used.. :. . This makes an exceedingly jieat finish, but the. work must be very evenly, done to secure the best results. 4 Catchstltch Is nothing . more or leas than the familiar herringbone. ' ' s "... - .

' The cross-stitching could be omitted, but It really adds very much to the beauty of the robe. it. A. white center, with pink crous-etltchn ig and a pink and white border would ' be very effective, but If you do aot wish. p- use, the cross stitch dealgn. make a: plain center ef piak yarn, with a pink " and white border. . .
