I have recently bought myself some new charting software for designing my cross stitch patterns and it has taken me some time to get used to it. It is great as it offers so many extra features but there have been times when I have missed the simplicity of my old software. The main bonus for this new program is it allows you to chart much larger patterns and that is something I have wanted to do for a while.
I love sampler designs as I often work on small motifs and these are a great way of bringing these ideas together. This is the first of such sampler designs, I have brought together some of my favorite British motifs. Included are the iconic Black taxi, red double Decker bus and the Royal guard. I have tried to keep the pallet simple and have only used 6 DMC colors in the whole piece so it is great for a beginner who fancies a new challenge.
If you like this sampler design you can find the pattern in my etsy store. You can download it instantly after payment so there is no postage to pay and no waiting for the delivery, you can get stitching straight away.
