Presenting the Preamble of our Constitution in a clean and classic design for cross stitch.

Some of you on this side of the "pond" may find the spelling of the word "defence" a bit odd; here in the United States we are used to seeing it spelled "defense." However, the word "defence" is actually the British spelling of the same word and as our founding fathers were British colonists, it's not surprising that this spelling was used.

 
Stitch count:

180 x 171

Fabric:

30 count Heirloom Gold linen from R&R Reproductions
(Any pretty warm neutral will do nicely)

Threads:

The Gentle Art: Maple Syrup (10 yards), Oatmeal, and Tarnished Gold (10 yards)
Classic Colorworks: Bandana, Wavy Navy (10 yards)

In early printings, the symbols for Bandana and Tarnished Gold were switched. Bandana is used for the red portions of the flag, and Tarnished Gold is one of the colors used for the text.
