This cross stitch sampler includes a quote by Samuel Johnson, "Our brightest blazes of gladness are often kindled by unexpected sparks."
The photos show the top portion and then the bottom portion but it is tall and narrow when completed.
This is an original design that uses full and half cross stitches, the back stitch, and is simple and easy to complete. 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.
