This cross stitch sample is a quote by the Greek philosopher Herculites: "The Soul is dyed the color of its thoughts, think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the full light of day. The content of your character is your choice, your integrity is your destiny, it is the light that guides your way. Day by day, what you choose, what you think, and what you do is who you become."
This is an original design that uses half and full cross stitches, the back stitch, and a total of 4 DMC floss colors (blue and 3 shades of tan). You can substitute a different color in lieu of the blue to suit your own preference or home decor. This chart prints in color if using a color printer which makes it very easy to read. The chart includes the pattern, a list of DMC floss colors, and the finished size using 14, 16, or 18 count fabric.
I've been crocheting for years and was unable to find patterns so, I designed my own. These are "Not Your Grandma's Afghan" but a more modern twist for today's home.
