Item details

(This listing is for a downloadable cross stitch chart in PDF format, which you will need to download and print prior to use. It is not for a finished project of any type, nor does it include any of the other supplies - such as fabric, floss, and needle – that you will need to stitch the design.)


***This design was featured on BUZZFEED on November 12, 2014***


A cross stitch homage to Sophia’s favorite (retirement) home away from home, this whimsical Shady Pines sampler features traditional sampler motifs accented by classic lettering and a simple, understated border.

Stitched entirely in full cross stitch with backstitch lettering, this easy-to-stitch design measures 89 stitches wide by 61 stitches high and, when stitched on either 28-count linen or 14-count aida, will fit nicely in most standard five-by-seven frames, giving you an almost limitless array of finishing options.

Perfect for display not only at the entrance to Shady Pines but also in a simple Brooklyn apartment, a modern Miami manse, or a traditional St. Olaf farmhouse, this sampler would make a wonderful addition to your home or office or a wonderful gift for your own special Golden Girl (or Golden Boy).

The color image above shows how the design would look using the fabric and floss specified in the pattern, but you easily could substitute another fabric - perhaps one of the wonderful hand-dyed blue aidas/linens currently available - if you prefer a more modern look.

Your chart will be available for download in PDF format immediately after your payment is processed.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Have a wonderful day, and happy stitching!
