Recently a dear friend asked whether I had any patterns with greyhounds or Celtic borders. I liked the idea, so I created this sampler pattern as a Christmas gift for her. It features several Celtic running knot patterns, as well as a little scene of a greyhound chasing a hare through the woods. The line "Let the hound the hare go chase" is from 'Aglaia: A Pastoral', by Nicholas Breton, written in the early 17th century. I personalised this sampler with my friend's initials and the year 2014 in Latin numerals, but you can change it with your name, initials and year in whatever way you prefer! As is usual with old samplers, the J and U are missing from this sampler, and can be substituted with both I and V respectively.

The British isles and the Celts have a long history with the greyhound, which continues up to this day. Dog racing is still popular, but unfortunately has a darker side. I would like to take this opportunity to ask you to have a look at Greyhound Rescue West of England (http://www.grwe.com). It is the leading independent charity operating in the field of rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of unwanted, abused or abandoned greyhounds and lurchers. 25% of the money brought in by this pattern is being donated to the GRWE. Thank you for your support!

This pattern is 179 stitches high and 117 stitches wide. Stitched on 32 count belfast linen (available in my shop), this pattern would measure approximately 11 1⁄4 by 7 3⁄8 inches (28.5 by 18.5).

All my patterns are available as high quality PDF files. To open these files you will need Adobe Reader, which you can download here for free: http://get.adobe.com/reader

If you have any questions about this item or my shop, don't hesitate to contact me! I love hearing from you. Also check out my website http://www.modernfolkembroidery.com
