A wonderfully historic sampler, featuring the imposing
tall ships as they set sail for new lands. It features part of the poem
Sea Fever by John Masefield -
I must go down to the sea again,
to the lonely sea and sky
And all I ask is a tall ship
and a star to steer her by
Full of interesting nautical images, this sampler is a
challenging project - a joy to stitch.
As it is a charted design, it may be stitched on any
evenweave fabric of your choice - the size will then vary.
