Item details

“We become the victims of our feelings unless we can in some degree command them” gothic novel 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's father is speaking to her on his deathbed. He tells her, "...since, in our passage through this world, painful circumstances occur more frequently than pleasing ones, and since our sense of evil is, I fear, more acute than our sense of good, we become the victims of our feelings, unless we can in some degree command them." He dies soon after, leaving his daughter orphaned in a foreign land.

I felt this advice more or less spoke for itself, and so went with a simple, elegant border design to accompany it.

This pattern measures 123 x 124 stitches. The sample was stitched on 14 ct Aida cloth and (stitched area) measures 8 ½” by 8 ¾”. It took about 13 hours to stitch.
