I have always been very much charmed by Frisian cross-stitch samplers. Their folk aesthetic is particularly appealing, but probably most interesting is the very unique form of lettering found on these samplers. Frisian letters were traditionally embroidered in capitals, decorated with little ‘eyes’ and other decorative stitches, and usually showcased a great skill in embroidery.

For my sampler I took inspiration from old models, but reworked them into a unique and original sampler with an antique feel. It features several alphabets, crosses, hearts, trees of life and a selection of birds and other animals.

This pattern measures 205 crosses in height and 275 crosses in width. Stitched over two threads on 32 count linen, it would measure approximately 12 3/4” by 17 1/4” (32.5 by 43.5cm).
