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.

This year marks the beginning of our efforts in the Labrador breeding business. To commemorate this new venture, I combined some sampler classics: a big house, wonky trees, birds, dogs, and a sassy quote.

The quote is from a book called Anecdotes of Dogs by Edward Jesse, which was written in 1846.

“With the exception of women, there is nothing on earth
so agreeable or necessary to the comfort of man as the dog.”

Don’t we all agree? The Reward of Merit today goes to Dogs! Our faithful, devoted, frolicksome companions; they torment us with their mournful eyes while we eat our dinners, and warm our hearts with their unconditional love when we’ve had a bad day.

I worked the grass entirely with tent stitches to save time. I satin stitched the roof tiles and some of the window panes for a shinier finish. You could do the same, or finish the entire sampler with cross-stitches.

However you choose to stitch it, make this sampler your own by working in your own initials... I have included a full alphabet set for you to use.

Stitch Count: 173 x 134

Model stitched on Weeks Dye Works 30ct. Confederate Gray linen.

Using flosses from The Gentle Art: 0130 Avocado, 1150 Flax, 1170 Dark Chocolate, 7019 Pomegranate, 7079 Heirloom Gold, 7080 Endive, 7088 Baked Clay

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.
