Must Fly Sampler
CROSS STITCH PATTERN DESIGNED BY RIVERDRIFT HOUSE

 

Amanda Stevenson, Riverdrift House's designer,  was struck by the beauty of a large sampler when she visited the National Library of Wales collection in Aberystwyth. Stitched by Mary Jones in 1826 it depicts a manor house and its ornamental garden.

 

The central motif that appears in front of the house looks like a carpet, but is it a paved courtyard with an ornamental pattern? a garden pool decorated with mosaics? We'll never know. Still, it gives a very original character to the embroidery. The designer based her design on the original sampler, then added birds, animals, insects and flowers of her own creation, giving it a new life.

 

"It is always fun to re-interpret an antique classic. When absorbed in the stitching, it feels the closest to time travel I could ever come. I titled the design ‘Must Fly’ in reference to this experience "

 

The dominant tones are coral red and turquoise blue. The sampler was worked on a light gray linen fabric, but it is also possible to cross stitch on a white fabric substituting 2 colors of threads as listed.

 

Cross stitch pattern designed by Riverdrift House.
