Bristol Berries II - Cross Stitch Pattern

These berries capture the essence of the beloved Bristol orphanage samplers and pay homage to those children and the Bristol orphanages. This 2nd in the series includes the ever-present Bristol squirrel and pieces which highlight the orphanages themselves. 

These berries focus on some of the lovely pattern bands and alphabets Maria Hancock stitched into her sampler. You can view her original sampler virtually at The Cleveland Museum of Art. Thanks again to Claudia Dutcher Kistler of Dutch Treat Designs
