Once weekly needlepoint sampler using the stitch templates provided by Sheree Lantz in her ‘A Pageant of Pattern for Needlepoint Canvas’

Mrs Lantz refers firstly to the group: Mosaics. Then the stitch: a flat. The design she states is a German 15th century embroidery pattern.

This is my ninth sampler. I’ve used two threads of 2-ply Appletons crewel wool in pale rose and raspberry pinks. I stitched this in Florence, by a large window, overlooking St Elizabeth Square, on a cold crisp evening, with the shutters open and the sounds of tourists seeping in.
