Sampler design in celebration of the inspirational Bess of Hardwick, trusted friend of Queen Elizabeth 1 and a great supporter of the needlecrafts, amongst much else! An original stitched version of this design hangs in the shop at Chatsworth House alongside the kits we supply there. (Their exclusive version includes the word CHATSWORTH in the lower border).
Worked in full cross stitch only throughout, so fast and fun to complete.
The kit includes 14 Count Cream Aida, 6-stranded Anchor embroidery threads, needle, clear symbol chart and instructions.
Size of finished embroidery approx 31.5 x 24 cm (12 1/2 x 9 1/4 in)

My mom's obsessed with Bess of Hardwick so I've decided to do her this cross stitch for Christmas. The pattern is amazing. So historic and Tudor it's unreal. I've got so many cross stitches from Riverdrift and they're all over my house. Thank you for a great stitch ❤️
Lovely, just as I expected. Looking forward to starting it!
