For this little sampler I took inspiration from French country samplers. I love the simplicity of the little red school house samplers stitched by many a needle craft student. These samplers would often be adorned with decorative stitches and borders, animals, or the name or initials of the maker. On my pattern I designed a rather proud rooster showing off his beautiful feathers. He’s stitched on a backdrop of little flowers, with a full alphabet on the left hand side.

This pattern measures 57 crosses in height and 96 in width. Stitched over two threads, your finished piece should measure approximately 3 5/8” by 6” (9cm by 15cm). I stitched the example shown on Platinum linen.

    This sampler caught my eye enough for me to try my hand at cross stitch. I used indigo blue thread and it looks great in that colour too. The pattern was easy to follow and the many curves that make up the rooster seemed to flow really well and made stitching this a joy.
