(This listing is for a downloadable cross stitch chart in PDF format, which you will need to download and print prior to use. It is not for a finished project of any type, nor does it include any of the other supplies - such as fabric, floss, and needle – that you will need to stitch the design.)

Inspired by the work of Henry David Thoreau, this charming sampler features a traditional alphabet accented with a depiction of the Walden Pond cabin, a short excerpt from the text of the book, Thoreau's name, the year 1845 - when he began his life in the woods, and eight specialty stitch dividing bands.

Measuring 73 stitches wide by 166 stitches tall, this sampler is a lovely reminder of the simple pleasures in life and would make a unique accent for your home or a thoughtful gift for a special friend.

This design is charted for Gentle Art Sampler Threads (DMC conversions provided) on Natural Belfast linen. Because of the specialty stitches in this design, it is not suitable for linen. If you prefer to stitch on aida cloth, however, you easily can replace the specialty stitches with standard cross stitches.

The color image above shows how the design would look using the fabric and floss specified in the pattern.

Your chart will be available for download in PDF format immediately after your payment is processed.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Have a wonderful day, and happy stitching!
