Item details

With the new EU VAT laws, I can no longer offer automatic downloads. All chart purchases will be manually emailed to you at the email address listed on your account within 24-48 hours. Please note, all PDF purchases are digitally encoded for identification.

I love Spanish style samplers with their concentric bands, so I decided to create one of my own.

Floss used in the model is from http://www.thesilkmill.com/site/ and can be purchased directly from the site.

Fabric used in the model is from http://www.picturethisplus.com/ and can also be purchased directly or at your favourite needlework shop.

Additional Northern Expressions Needlework Designs can be found at Dinky Dyes, Hoffman Distributing, or can be ordered through your favourite shop.

Materials
Stitch Count: 189w x 267h

Design Size: 9 ½ x 13 ½ inches on 40 count fabric
10 ½ x 15 inches on 36 count fabric
12 x 17 inches on 32 count fabric
13 ½ x 19 inches on 28 count fabric

Fabric used for the model is 36ct Linen in Aerial from Picture This Plus.

The Silk Mill Floss

4010 Steel – Very Dark Blue x2 OR DMC 823 x2 skeins
4007 Ultramarine – Dark Blue x2 OR DMC 803 x2 skeins
4067 Della Robbia Blue – Medium Blue x2 OR DMC 312 x2 skeins
4068 Blue Suede Shoes – Light Blue x2 OR DMC 322 x2 skeins
4013 Blue Pearl – Very Light Blue x2 OR DMC 3755 x2 skeins

This is not an exact conversion but it's pretty darn close. :)

Floss estimates are for 36 count fabric using one strand of thread for stitching over two unless otherwise noted. For lower counts of fabric you'll need to increase this amount.

By the way, I would really LOVE to see this one done in other colour schemes. Hint, hint.

Happy Stitching!

I paid through paypal echeck, not knowing I'd have to wait several days for it to be cleared. Nicole allowed me to re-order using my paypal balance so I can receive the pdf chart faster. I am a specialty stitches beginner and the instructions are very clear. I found this pattern after seeing darlingbluebell on instagram/youtube stitch it in a beautiful blues and greens color scheme. Nicole is prompt and detailed in answering questions. I emailed her for her suggestions on a spun silk line. She suggested Soie D'Alger or NPI silks for coverage on the 32 count lugana I chose for the project. I would definitely order another pattern in the future. I have my eye on "Positive and Negative" and the Celtic patterns :)

I have 6 of Nicole's beautiful designs. The files are sent very quickly. The patterns are very clear, with great instructions on how to do the speciality stitches, which is fantastic for a novice like me!

Absolutely gorgeous design (obviously). The pattern itself is impeccable, very easy to read and understand, even for a specialty stitch beginner like me. I've heard tons of positive opinions about NE and they are all well deserved. I'm over the moon with the pattern and the clear instructions and can't wait to get started!
