Mercer House in Cross Stitch
Counted Cross Stitch Pattern
Historic Savannah Series
Counted Cross Stitch Patterns of Historic Savannah Buildings & Landmarks
The historic house in this cross stitch pattern was designed by John Norris for General Hugh Mercer in 1860. Unfinished during the Civil War, its timbers were removed by U.S. soldiers to build shelters in Monterey Square. The hisoric house was finally completed in 1869.
As with most of Norris' designs, the historic building in this cross stitch is an eclectic combination of Greek Revival, Italian Villa, and Renaissance Revival architecture.
This cross stitch pattern would be lovely stitched on an ecru or pale gold Aida cloth.
The counted cross stitch pattern includes color code for DMC cotton floss. It also includes a sizing chart for 11, 14, 18, and 22 count fabrics. Embroidery details enhance the counted cross stitch.
