This is the second cross-stitch sampler in the “Letters from the North” series. I started the design of this sampler with an antique piece of linen on which someone had started embroidering parts of a beautiful border design. That person never came round to finishing the job, so I quite like the idea of having finished that design!

The sampler features an assortment of original alphabets designed by me, while the decorative elements were inspired by Danish embroidery. This particular cross-stitch sampler reminds me of early 20th century school samplers.

It measures 360 x 209 stitches, and when embroidered on 32-count linen (12 threads/cm) would be approximately 22.5″ by 13″ (57x33cm).
