Tokens of Friendship and Love - Cross Stitch Pattern by Ellen Chester

Charts and directions are included to make three projects: Friendship Sampler and two versions of a smaller sampler called My Gift to You.
All three projects are derived from an antique, the TV sampler, 1875.  TV stitched using brightly colored wools on coarse linen.  I chose instead to use one of my favorite colors of overdyed thread to recreate these simple yet striking designs, now with only subtle variations in color.

The model was stitched on 32-count Examplar linen from Lakeside Linen and Designs, Inc. and uses Brethren Blue Sampler Thread from The Gentle Art.

Stitch counts: Friendship Sampler: 156 wide x 136 high.  My Gift To You (larger): 71 wide x 71 high, stitched over two linen threads, (smaller): 71 wide x 65 high, stitched over one linen thread.

Stitches used:  cross stitch
