The Get Sampled cross stitch pattern set features all four patterns in the Country Twists collection: ABC OMG, Mortgage Sweet Mortgage, Samplers Since 1675, and She Betta Don’t. The pattern lays out all four patterns stitched as one piece as shown in the gold framed main image, but they can also be stitched and framed individually. These patterns all feature the same pretty textured border to tie all the designs together, making a fun modern twist on a traditional cross stitch sampler.

Cross stitch samplers have been around for hundreds of years, some embroidery samplers have been recovered from Egyptian burial grounds that are dated from the 14th and 15th centuries. Traditionally they were used as a reference of various stitches a young woman would learn, and later became a way to “ensure” she would be able to adorn household items with names (so items came back from a common wash day to the right household), and to add decorative effects to various items of clothing and domestic furnishings. They became a way to “measure a woman’s worth,” which of course in modern times is incomprehensible. Putting a cheeky twist on the beautiful and sometimes “strained” history of samplers (as shown by this viral spoof on a traditional sampler), the Samplers Since 1675 cross stitch pattern is sure to beautifully adorn your home while continuing the very long lineage of creating samplers.
Nothing says “cross stitch sampler” like a pretty alphabet chart. This one however has a little bit of a twist, a secret sassy message if you do more than take a quick glance. Featuring lovely soft tones used in traditional samplers, the ABC OMG cross stitch pattern will make a cheeky addition to any home or office.
Ah yes, home ownership, one of the things that’s seen as the hallmark of reaching adulthood… The Mortgage Sweet Mortgage cross stitch pattern is a fun play on the traditional phrase “Home Sweet Home,” and reflects the modern reality of many homeowners. One fun fact about the word mortgage is that it’s French for “death deed.” So if you’re wanting to cheer yourself on for taking on such a big responsibility, or to cheer on your friends and family when they take the leap, this pretty cross stitch pattern makes a perfect addition to your own home or an ideal homewarming gift.
