Inspiration for this stocking came from the many antique samplers we have all grown to love. It's the perfect Christmas gift for the sampler lover.
The original model was stitched on #37 Legacy linen (Corn Tassel). It was stitched in a combination of hand dyed fibers and DMC. DMC equivalents are included.

from Ireland on 11/02/2023 - A Fresh Use for Sampler Motifs It does not immediately occur to us - more's the pity - that Sampler motifs traditionally were to be used beyond that first attempt collection of patterns. They were, however - and this pattern shows just what can be done with them. They should suggest to all stitchers to use these images more broadly. This one is such a fine and useful pattern. I shall certainly use it again and again and try other sampler ideals in different ways.
