This one is my personal favourite!

This sampler makes us smile! It is so cheery with its splashes of red and abundance of flowers.

The sampler is stitched entirely in cross stitch over two and can be stitched on linen or Aida. Sarah is suitable for needleworkers of all abilities and would make an ideal “starter” project for those wishing to explore sampler.


The design area is 197 stitches (w) x 173 stitches (h). Our calculations have included a 3” margin for finishing and framing.
