This listing is for a CROSS STITCH PATTERN, not for the finished sampler.
I created this design because I had always wanted to try stitching a band sampler in the 18th century style. The overall design of this pattern mimics an antique that I have long admired, and features a saying from another period sampler.
"How truly blest are they who leisure find to dress the little garden of the mind".
Model stitched on 32 count linen
Stitch Count: 140 by 210
DMC flosses used:
223, 225, 300, 433, 832, 834, 839, 924, 926, 3777, Ecru
The lovely frame is an antique.
All of my patterns come with a fully detailed & professional thread chart, color photograph, & my recommendations for floss and fabric. It will arrive in a plastic zip-close envelope for safe keeping.
