Gaudeamus
An illuminated page from a gradual (music for the Mass) painted on vellum in tempera. The Latin text reads "Gaudeamus om[ne]s in domino diem festum celebrantes sub honore" meaning "Let us all rejoice in the Lord celebrating a festival in honor of...". A saint's name would follow on the next page. The letter G is decorated with a scene depicting the death of the Virgin, with the crucified Christ, angels, apostles, and others mourning. The four-line musical staff and square notes are a system of musical notation in use in Italy during much of the Middle Ages called Square Neumes. The background is not stitched. Ecru fabric is recommended. (about 1285)

Holiday Candle
A cheery candle burning brightly in a shiny brass holder decorated with holly sprigs and berries. Based on a motif from a vintage Christmas postcard. The background is not stitched, and the pattern is designed for white fabric. (about 1920)
Saint Agatha
Saint Agatha, based on a Greek Orthodox icon. The Greek text, transliterated, says Hagia Agatha (Saint Agatha). Agatha was desired by the Praetor of Sicily, but she refused him and was arrested as a Christian and endured many trials and torture, including having her breasts cut off. She is the patron saint of women with breast cancer, and 20% of the sale of each copy of this pattern will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

The background is not stitched. We show it on gold fabric similar to the original icon, but any color may be used.

Earth from Space
Planet Earth and the moon from 22,000 miles out in space. North and South America are seen through light swirling clouds with green lowlands and rocky mountains. The moon is far behind the earth and a few scattered stars can also be seen. This pattern is based on a composite photograph produced from imagery from two satellites. The background is not stitched; use black fabric. The moon and/or stars may be omitted. We also offer a night view. (2000)
Earth from Space at Night
Planet Earth at night from 22,000 miles out in space. Great Britain, Greenland, Iceland, Europe, northern Africa, the Middle East, India, Russia, part of China, and the eastern edge of Canada are seen as an array of lights on deep blue land masses. The background is not stitched; use black fabric. We also offer a daytime view. (2000)
Fetching the Tree
A young boy carrying a small fir tree and a basket of rosy red apples, cookies, and gingerbread through the snow as more large flakes drift down. He is dressed in a red jacket, a striped muffler, black cap, tan corduroy knickerbockers, and gray wool gaiters. He is heading away from a house partially hidden by the snowy hilltop, so perhaps he plans to set up a Christmas tree for the birds and animals. (About 1880)
A Jolly Christmas
A little girl dressed for Christmas in a red spotted dress, white smock, red bow in her hair, and red shoes, holds a black cat against her shoulder. She stands next to a green basket filled with green holly leaves and red berries. Based on a vintage Christmas card, it includes the words "A Jolly Christmas". The background is not stitched; use white fabric. (About 1920)
Marguerite Brand
An orange crate label for Marguerite Brand oranges. It shows yellow and white marguerite daisies against a light blue background, with a red flag bearing the name of the Earl Fruit Company, California in white letters. (about 1910)
Deco Christmas
Two art deco ladies trimming a bi-colored Christmas tree. One, wearing a lavender gown with a fur collar against a red background, is trimming a white tree; the other, in a dark red gown against an off-white background, is trimming a green tree. This pattern can be stitched on red or off-white fabric. If red fabric is used, only the off-white side is stitched, and vice-versa. (About 1925)
Christmas Morning
A little girl in a blue dress sitting on a low stool and happily exploring the contents of shoes filled with Christmas gifts. Her doll is nestled in the crook of her arm as she rummages in the shoe for toys and oranges. She has also hung a stocking from the post of her brass bed and a marionette poking out the top is reaching towards her. A sunny window with potted topiary plants is behind her. (About 1920)
Falconry (detail)
Ornately dressed noblemen and women hunting with falcons. The lead horseman carries a falcon on his wrist and is gazing intently ahead. The man following him is sharing his horse with a lady and is turned to talk to her. A man on foot carries two more falcons. Dogs and more people fill the scene, and the background is of leaves and flowers. This is a small portion of the Falconry tapestry from the Devonshire Hunting Tapestries. (about 1425-1450)
Sunflower Safety Match
A cheerful stylized sunflower from a matchbox. This pattern is charted as solidly stitched, but you may stitch it on ecru fabric and let exposed fabric stand in for the ecru borders, or stitch it on red and let exposed fabric replace the red background around the sunflower. (The red area in the flower is still stitched.) With these options, the requirement for ecru is less than one skein of ecru, or 1 skein of DMC 3328, respectively.

The Night Cafe
A small, gas-lit cafe at night. The walls are orange, the ceiling is green, and the floor is of coarse yellow boards. A few people are sitting at the small tables, some talking, others slumped in their seats. A man in a white suit stands at a billiards table in the center of the room. According to Van Gogh, this was a cafe de nuit, open all night. "Night prowlers" could take refuge there when they had no money to pay for a lodging, or were too drunk to be taken in. (Post-Impressionist, 1888)
Starry Night
A spectacularly star-lit night view of the Rhone River at Arles. Buildings along the river are dimly seen, as are several small boats moored for the night, but riverside lights are reflected as long yellow trails in the water. On the near shore, in the foreground, a man and a woman walking are dwarfed by the glorious lights. (Post-Impressionist, 1888)
Starry Night
A mountain village sleeps under a spectacular night sky, with huge glowing stars wheeling and tumbling about the sky, and a blazing yellow crescent moon. Looming blackly over the village is the top of a cypress tree. See VGO003-S for a smaller version (fewer stitches, slightly less detail) of this pattern, or compare them side by side. (Post-Impressionist, 1889)

Bouquet of Sunflowers
Rusty-orange sunflowers sprawling from a two-toned earthenware jug on an orange surface against a wall of Van Gogh's trademark yellow. The green leaves and a touch of blue are all that moderates the hot colors. (Post-Impressionist, 1888)
Cafe Terrace by Night
A brightly-lit sidewalk cafe under an awning in a village at night, with a few people lingering at the small tables. Though the stars are blazing in a deep blue sky, shops are still open and several people are strolling along the cobblestone street. All the activity is at a distance from us, though, creating a sense that we are observers rather than participants in this scene. (Post-Impressionist, 1888)
Fritillaries
A still life of a bouquet of orange fritillaries in a round brass pot, sitting on a surface streaked with red, against a speckled blue-green background. (Post-Impressionist, 1887)
Bouquet of Daisies and Anemones
A still life of rusty-red, yellow, and white chrysanthemums, blue anemones, and a few red nasturtiums in a pale blue ceramic vase. The background is abstract, with the vase sitting on a streaked surface against a speckled background that is blue above changing to red below. (Post-Impressionist, 1887)
The Bridge at Langlois
A mule-drawn covered wagon crossing a river on a drawbridge with stone abutments. Several women on the shore next to the bridge are taking advantage of the perfect weather to do their laundry in the river. A leaking rowboat is drawn up into the reeds nearby. The strong blues and oranges in this painting are particularly striking. (Post-Impressionist, 1888)
Irises
Purple irises with golden beards and silvery blue-green leaves growing in orange soil. Somehow one white iris has also crept in. Behind them is a bed of orange crysanthemums. (Post-Impressionist, 1889)
Still Life: Irises
Powder-blue Japanese irises with a few blue-green leaves standing in a yellow clay pot against a starkly yellow background. See VGO010-S for a smaller version (fewer stitches, slightly less detail) of this pattern, or compare them side by side. (Post-Impressionist, 1890)

Pine Trees against the Light
Gnarled, windswept, and broken pine trees looming over a road along which a woman carrying a basket on her back is walking, while behind them the setting sun turns the whole sky golden. (Post-Impressionist, 1889)
Olive Fields
Twisted and gnarled olive trees with gray-green leaves seem to dance in a hummocky red clay orchard under the intense heat of the sun in a blazing yellow sky. Blue mountains far in the distance are the only promise of coolness. (Post-Impressionist, 1889)
Poppy Field
A small farm with a crazy quilt of fields. Many different crops are growing, several sprinkled with red corn poppies. Hedges separate several of the fields and a windbreak line of cypress trees shielding the yellow stucco farmhouse marches off into the distance. Across a lane from the fields is a small shed. (Post-Impressionist, 1889)
Vincent's Chair
Still life of a yellow wicker chair with a pipe and tobacco pouch on the seat. It stands on a red tile floor beside a pale blue wall and a door painted turquoise blue. Behind the chair in a corner is a wooden box with some other belongings jumbled into it. (Post-Impressionist, 1888)
Boats on the Beach
Several brightly and ornately painted sailboats drawn up onto a sandy beach out of the reach of the breaking waves. Not far offshore, several more sailboats seem to be beating against the wind which is almost palpable in the brush strokes used for the sky. (Post-Impressionist, 1888)
Still Life with Bible
A battered family Bible open to Isaiah 53, a chapter which discusses the eventual rewards for patient earthly suffering, on a covered table next to a paperback copy of Emile Zola's "La Joie de Vivre" (The Joy of Living), a novel in which the optimism of one character is contrasted with the depression and resentment of the others. An extinguished candle stands beside the two books. This pattern is solidly stitched. (Post-Impressionist, 1885)
The Yellow House
The house in Arles where Van Gogh lived. His description:
My house here is painted butter yellow on the outside and has solid green window shutters; it is located directly in a square with green park full of plane-trees, oleanders and acacias. And inside all the walls are painted white and the floor is tiled in red. Yet the most striking thing is the glaring blue sky. Inside the house I can really live and breathe and think and paint.
In this view, people are walking about the streets and sitting outside a cafe. A train is passing over a low bridge on the right. (Post-Impressionist, 1888)
Almond Blossom
Branches of an almond tree in bloom against a turquoise background. Van Gogh painted the almond blossoms, a symbol of new life, in honor of his nephew's birth. (Post-Impressionist, 1890)
Four Cut Sunflowers
Four bright sunflower heads cut with short stems, lying on a blue surface. Three are facing up to show the seeds, while the fourth is face down. The rest of the background is abstract, dark leafy green, and strawlike yellow and white. (Post-Impressionist, 1887)
Cypresses
A view of two cypress trees standing alone in a flowery meadow. Their dark green contrasts with the swirling blue sky and pinkish-white clouds. A crescent moon shows high above blue mountains. (Post-Impressionist, 1889)
