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.

Don’t we all love samplers with houses? I know I sure do, and it seems I never get tired of designing them either. This one has a sweet checker-board lawn, single gigantic and cheerful flower, floral border, and those timeless words,
“Be it ever so Humble, there’s no place like Home”.

"Home! Sweet Home!" is a song that has remained well known for over 150 years. Adapted from American actor John Howard Payne's 1823 opera Clari. the song's melody was composed by Englishman Sir Henry Bishop with lyrics by Payne. The words are as follows:

Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam,
Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home;
A charm from the skies seems to hallow us there,
Which seek thro' the world, is ne'er met elsewhere.
Home! Home!
Sweet, sweet home!
There's no place like home
There's no place like home!

The song was reputedly banned from being played in Union Army camps during the American Civil War for being too reminiscent of hearth and home and likely to incite desertion.
