Be It My Ambition Sampler (Morning Session)

Instructor: Ellen Chester of With My Needle

Class Details

A luscious strawberry vine border surrounds nine octagonal cartouches in this compartmentalized-style sampler. The old sampler verse in the center cartouche, Be it my ambition to excel in the blest art of doing well, is truly a sentiment we should embrace not only in our needlework, but also in our lives.

Stitched on 36-count linen with silk threads, the sampler uses 14 stitches: backstitch, closed herringbone, cross stitch, cross stitch over one, horizontally-elongated cross stitch, mosaic, padded satin, satin, ray, Smyrna cross, star, straight, tent and vertically-elongated cross stitch. Class kit includes: 36-count linen, silk embroidery threads, a needle, charts and extensively detailed stitching instructions
