When it comes to Christmas stitching, sometimes there's nothing more satisfying than working on a beautiful traditional sampler that can become a focal point for your festive decorations. But at times, the classic red and green palette may seem a little premature, or you may be leaning towards a cleaner look. This elegant take on tradition, worked in cool blue, white and silver, will add sparkle to your Christmas decor - without going over the top.
This beautiful sampler measures 13.5x22cm, and takes about 15 hours to stitch.
