Item details

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

To create this design, I studied pictures of antique samplers in my digital collection, looking for borders and bands that would suit. I also copied or adapted some bands from my blackwork band sampler “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm”, so that the pair could be displayed as a set or alternately fill the same spot in your house. I then added some key phrases from a favorite Valentine song, written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart in 1937 for the musical Babes in Arms…

My funny valentine
Sweet comic valentine
You make me smile with my heart
Your looks are laughable
Yet you're my favourite work of art

Is your figure less than greek
Is your mouth a little weak
When you open it to speak
Are you smart?

But don't change a hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little valentine stay
Each day is valentines day

Stitch Count: 125 x 233
Model stitched on Picture This Plus 36ct. Sand
The Gentle Art floss: 0511 Country Redwood
(3 five yard skeins needed when stitched with one thread over two)

The lovely frame is an antique.

All of my patterns come with a fully detailed & professional thread chart, color photograph, & my recommendations for floss and fabric. It will arrive in a plastic zip-close envelope for safe keeping.
