"Stephensons Rocket" cross stitch chart.

Here is another cross stitch chart design I created back in 2002, now available for all cross stitch lovers to download from The Artist In You Blog!

The Rocket was the most advanced steam engine of its day. It was built for the Rainhill Trials held by the Liverpool & Manchester Railway in 1829 to choose the best and most competent design. It set the standard for a hundred and fifty years of steam locomotive power. Though the Rocket was not the first steam locomotive, it's claim to fame is that it was the first steam locomotive to bring together several innovations to produce the most advanced locomotive of its day, and the template for most steam locomotives since. In fact, the standard steam locomotive design is often called the "Stephensonian" locomotive.

This downloadable ZIP file contains a full black and white symbol chart, key and thread requirements along with a conversion chart from Anchor to DMC threads.
