Letters from the North is a series of Scandinavian style cross-stitch samplers, of which this is the first. Fascinated by their simplicity and geometric abstraction I began designing my own samplers with a distinct folk aesthetic.

The pattern here is the third in the series, depicting a large flower bush in a decorative pot, flanked by two little deer and another two flowerpots. Little birds and peacocks inhabit the shrubs. At the top and bottom of the sampler are two original border designs.

Both border designs could be repeated infinitely and would look great, for instance, on a cushion- or pillow cover.

Although I have opted for a monochrome red sampler, you can choose any colour or a mixture of your favourite colours.

This sampler measures 146 crosses in height and 119 crosses in width. Stitched over two threads on 32 count linen it would measure approximately 9 1/4” by 7 1/2” (23 by 19cm).
