Ohhhh... another golden-oldie by Sheepish Designs... we haven't had this pattern for years and years... but always loved it! Shady Day was originally published in 2004. It measures 98 x 191 in stitch count and is worked with a combination of Gentle Art Sampler Threads and DMC floss. All the sheep are so charming -- very organized beneath their billowing trees -- there are neat birds, a lazy, crooked and meandering alphabet, bold flowers, and those cool grassy hills.
There is mostly Cross Stitch in this... but bits of Lazy Daisies in the flower leaves and several places where Satin Stitches fill in giving extra texture to the flowers and those hills. This design has always captured the eye, and we're thrilled to have the chart back in stock!
Oh wow... we have had a retired model of this in the back room of the shop for years and years! I had thought we couldn't get the pattern anymore, but I loved the stitched model so much, I couldn't part with it. Then... MAGIC! By Sheepish Designs, this is Betsy Ross stitching the first American flag. She's in her garden of sheep, a peacock, birds, flowers and even a squirrel up there in the tree.
Coded for silks or DMC, it uses only Cross stitch and finishes approx 4-1/4 x 12-1/2 on 35ct. I'm not sure what part of it has the overwhelming appeal that it does... but over the years several gals have tried to buy the model, and were always disappointed that we had no chart! So, we present Betsy, in chart format, probably till we run out again!!
