HeartstringSamplery is taking a short break
Note from seller

I'm taking some time off to spend with my family. My charts are still available for sale via many local and online needlework shops, if you find yourself in dire need of a new chart to stitch. I will be re-opening my Etsy shop on July 30th. Have a fantastic month, enjoy your family, and as always... Happy Stitching! :)

Item details

This listing is for a CROSS STITCH PATTERN, not for the finished sampler.

This sampler’s roots go way back to the beginning of my designing days. Originally charted on graph paper and stitched a few times to be sold as a finished item, the chart lingered in my mind. One day I decided to enter it into my charting software, but along the way I became disenchanted with the original form. I then spent the next few years tweaking and changing it, but was never fully content with the outcome. Finally, this last Spring, I settled on the perfect combination of primitive and whimsical to make it just right.

The name Shooter’s Hill comes from a real location. Probably so called from the archers who frequently exercised themselves there in shooting with the bow, it is eight miles from London on the high road to Dover. The summit of Shooter's Hill is at about 423 feet, giving it the distinction of being one of the highest points in London, and therefore commanding great views of the city and Thames River.

My character and her house are entirely fictional, but in my imagination, she lives in a family home surrounded by forest and dangerous byways, but with view and birdsong unparalleled. The fences her father built suffice to keep highwaymen away, so she always feels safe in her hilltop home.
