This Blow the Wind Southerly Sampler cross stitch has a blowing wind between the points of the compass, north, south, east and west, and the verse ~
“Blow the wind southerly, southerly, southerly, blow the wind south o’er the bonny blue sea
Blow the wind southerly, southerly, southerly, Blow bonnie breeze, my lover to me”
These lyrics of longing bring the haunting voice of Kathleen Ferrier ringing to the ears.
The words are from a traditional Northumbrian folk song.
This design is a modest size for beginners and yet interesting to stitch.
