  • Charts in black and white, and colour


This beautiful cross stitch pattern is adapted from an antique English sampler, stitched in 1771 by a girl named Elizabeth Garratt.

Because the sampler lacked some letters ( J and U ) , I have added these along with the modern spelling of words, this has made the size/shape slightly different from the original.

There is a space on the lower end of the sampler to stitch your own name, and date.

Design Area: 154 x 257 stitches

If stitched on 28 ct linen/ 14 ct aida the pattern will measure :

11,00" x 18,36" / 28 x 46,6 cm
