Emmaline Cole 1835, A Christmas Sampler

For those who may be interested, I have designed a simple Christmas sampler which you can easily have finished before December 25.  Presenting Emmaline Cole 1835, inspired by Handel's Messiah composed in 1741 and commemorating the name of my ancestor.  The stitch count is 153 x 97 and uses all cross stitch over two with the exception of the tiny dog, which is over one.  The model is stitched using Gentle Arts threads, and includes a DMC conversion.  I have also included an alphabet and a graph for personalization.  Perhaps you might chose one of your ancestor's names for your sampler!

I am releasing this as a pdf download which includes 6 pages with a  color photograph.  Price is $9.00, or if you would prefer me to print it and mail to you, it will be $12.00 which includes domestic shipping.

If you would like to purchase, please leave me a comment and I will send you a paypal invoice and get your chart right out to you!  Thank you, and I hope you like it:)


  1. Wonderful sampler! Hope you are doing well. Know the farm keeps you very busy...glad you are still able to find time for your beautiful samplers.

  2. Melinda,
    What a beautiful sampler! I love the frame you chose for it.

  3. it's lovely Melinda and you know I've already downloaded it ! Not sure getting it done by 12/25 is realistic for me but I'll have fun no matter when it gets done. Good luck ! Mel

  4. Hi Melinda I would like a copy of your Christmas sampler. I think I would prefer the paper kind as I have had a few problems downloading cross stitch designs. Just let me know what to do next.

  5. I liked the arrows for their help in organizing your notes.
