Long Way Home - New Quaker Sampler

For the adventurous stitcher:

To be released to your favorite shops.  And now on Etsy
The Long Way Home, packed full of Quaker/Vierlanden  medallions.  And there oodles of little houses, including a lighthouse overlooking the water.
This design, 152 x 152, can be worked over 1 or 2. 
We suggest aida or 2 threads of any evenweave or linen.  
There is minimal back stitch just to highlight some of the houses and buildings.

It has been charted in 11 DMC colors with an excellent cross reference to beautiful Dinky Dyes Silk floss.
Our cover model uses Wichelt’s Water Lily linen, in                    32 count # 65203.  Use one or two strands for back stitch  depending upon the look you prefer.
The finished size, worked on that 32 count fabric over 2 threads, is 9 ½” square.  If this design is worked on 36 count over 2, finished size would be approximately 8 ½.  On 25 count over 1, finished size would be 6 ¼ over 6 ¼ inches.  The Long Way Home design can be worked over 1 thread, but take care with the detailed little houses and their tiny window panes.
