Cross-Stitch Sampler Pattern CORNWALL COTTAGE SAMPLER by Karen Kluba from Rosewood Manor, S-1025
This is a 14 page paper booklet from Rosewood Manor, designed by Karen Kluba, featuring the sampler on the cover, Cornwall Cottage Sampler. The scheme is split and enlarged, so that each segment is easy on the eyes.
Karen's style is refined, which you can witness in fine flowers and dots filling the space of the flowers in the basket. It creates gentle, lacey effect and elevates the whole piece to a higher level of needlework.
