Item details

“I perceive that all old mansions are haunted” gothic counted cross stitch sampler pattern.

This listing is for a PDF copy of the sampler pattern, which is sold as an instant digital download. Included with the pattern is a document containing a DMC floss color chart (which can be modified to suit the stitcher’s tastes) as well as any other relevant information about working the pattern.

In Ann Radcliffe's "The Mysteries of Udolpho", the heroine Emily has recently fled the castle Udolpho and finds herself among friends in a chateau. She is regaled with tales of strange music in the night and unexplainable things. Having just left similar surroundings (during the course of which a logical, non-magical explanation was found for all eerie happenings), Emily is slightly teasing, slightly in earnest when she remarks to her friend, "I perceive that all old mansions are haunted; I am lately come from a place of wonders; but unluckily, since I left it, I have heard almost all of them explained."

To accompany the text, I decided on a ghostly figure peering from the right and a spider web (with spider) partially obscuring the text on the left.

This pattern measures 140 x 61 stitches. The sample was stitched on 14 ct Aida cloth and (stitched area) measures 9 ¾” by 4 ½”. It took about 14 hours to stitch.
