Thirsty Hart... the Second New Design Released Today!

Another new design for you today... now listed in my etsy shop and also available directly through me via email (beth@heartstringsamplery.com).

Inspired by old samplers with lush bowers of vines and flowers... Detailed floral borders, stags resting in green meadows... And a favorite passage in scripture, Psalm 42:1, which I added in the King James Version, because I love the old English phrasing:

“As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God”.

If you love stitching large, detailed samplers, then this is a sampler for you.

Stitch Count: 262 x 230
Model stitched on Weeks Dye Works 40ct. Putty.

Using flosses from The Gentle Art: 0112 Grasshopper, 0320 Old Brick, 7000 Harvest Basket, 7019 Pomegranate, 7041 Apple Cider, 7057 Roasted Marshmallow, 7060 Picnic Basket, 7080 Endive

And flosses from Weeks Dye Works: 1230 Havana, 1330 Baked Apple,2202 Bullfrog, 2219 Whiskey

Conversion to DMC provided with the pattern.
