The Black House

The Black House is without a doubt the smallest design to be
released by Long Dog Samplers for many a moon.  But although small
in terms of acreage it lacks nothing in the intricacy department.

Let's creep up close and have a good look, but don't make
too much noise or the birds will drop the flowers they've been
collecting for their nests.

The Black House measures 111 stitches x 145 stitches
and is priced at £6.50 which when you work it out is only
slightly over 80p per woodpecker.
Now that has to be a bargain as in the local supermarket this
morning fresh woodpeckers were selling at £1.20 per kilo oven ready.

This example was stitched using GAST threads

at  or, alternatively, just wait for the paper
copies to rock up at your LNS in time for Christmas.


  1. Do we get to choose our own colors or did you pick the colors

    1. The sampler is charted in the colours you see here but there is absolutely no reason at all why you shouldn't change them to suit your own taste better. Nothing is ever set in stone with a Long Dog sampler.
