"God never closes a window without locking the door and setting the house on fire." -April Winchell of Regretsy

Now you too can warm the frozen cockles of your heart by stitching this universal truth up for your own favorite cynic. Or be stingy and keep it for yourself. I won't tell.

Within 48 hours after verification of payment, a digital PDF file of the sampler pattern will be emailed to the purchaser. If there is a different email you would like the pattern sent to than the one associated with your Etsy account, please state that in the "notes to seller". You will need Adobe reader to open the files, which you can download from adobe.com (reader).

Included in the pattern are options for printing a color chart or a black and white chart. The design specifications are:

Recommended Fabric Size: 9”x 9” (minimum)
Recommended Fabric Color & Type: Black 14 Count Aida
Stitch Area: 6.21” x 5.71” (87 x 80 stitches)
Total Stitches: 2058 + ~6.5” of backstitching

The floss colors are mapped to both DMC and Anchor colors, but feel free to adapt the colors to your liking or change the size. I'd also love to see photos of your completed work! Post them on my Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/mschristyxstitch

Any questions about the pattern or cross stitching are welcome, just send me a convo!

Happy Stitchin'!
