This listing is for a PDF pattern, instantly downloadable after purchase, so you can start stitching right away!
A while ago, one of my customers mentioned the opening lines to Robert Browning’s poem 'Rabbi Ben Ezra', which was published in 1864. The same lines inspired John Lennon to his beautiful song 'Grow Old With Me' - if you have never heard it, I would recommend listening to it.
It is a beautiful sentiment, and having pondered on how I wanted to depict these lines, I chose to make it very simple, where the text becomes the pattern. The only design feature is the star at the top and bottom of the page.
This sampler measures 216 crosses in height, and 191 crosses in width. Stitched over two threads on 32 count linen, it would approximately measure 13 1/2” by 12” (34.5 by 30.5 cm). You could stitch it with just one colour, or choose to pick two nice contrasting colours such as in the example on the cover. It would require approximately 7-8 skeins of embroidery wool.
