Sampler in Time - Doctor Who Inspired Cross Stitch Sampler Pattern



Low in stock

This listing is for the pattern only.

I have loved Doctor Who since I was introduced to him during his fourth incarnation. I really like the "new" Doctors, but nothing
will ever replace that grin and crazy eye of Tom Baker!

This sampler is my first attempt at melding geekery and traditional sampler stitchery. I have included elements from my favorite Doctors and my favorite companions. Perhaps we share some of the same memories!

The download is a zipped pdf file. The file contains four documents. The main pattern is large and prints out on 6 sheets with a two stitch overlap. A seventh page lists floss and instructions. There are separate patterns for K-9 for ease of stitching showing two versions, one with half stitches, one without. There is also a Gallifrey Alphabet and charted numbers for personalizing your sampler. On this page there is also charted letters so you can replace Spaceboy with Spaceman, as I know there is some heated debate about that particular quote. Although I did research the matter and found both terms used, people still feel very strongly about one or the other. So I just thought I would lessen the stress a bit and offer both versions! :-D

There is a complete floss list which also tells you how many skeins you will need. The sampler is 144 x 276 stitches measuring 10.29 x 19.71 inches on 14 count aida fabric.

This pattern is for personal use only.

This pattern is for the cross stitch design only. How you finish your sampler is left to your imagination! Happy stitching!

I've stitched and done sampler embroidery stitches for at least 25 years of my life, and this project looks like the chart will be easy to use as well as fun to stitch! Although I have not started this project yet, when finished it will be a gift for a Dr. Who addict dear friend of mine, whom I know will love it! The designer & seller of this chart has followed up & asked me to give her stitching feedback when I do start it, and not only did I think that was wonderful of her as an Etsy seller, but thought it was a great thing for an original designer, who publishes her own work, to do for her customers & stitcher's! Thanks & I promise to get back to you with any design issues I have and, if I don't have any, I'll still get back to you with a photo of the finished project!

I've been wanting to do a sampler style cross stitch for a while, but was having trouble finding inspiration.. then this popped up! perfect, wonderful! I was able to download it within seconds of paying for it, and am thoroughly enjoying my stitching again!
