Mae Govannen! A Tolkien Elvish Welcome Cross Stitch Sampler

Make your guests or customers feel welcome with this Tolkien Elvish cross stitch sampler that says Mae Govannen (or Well Met) in the Quenya mode. It is a free download for your personal stitching pleasure.

I would like to imagine that, being immortal, Tolkien's elves have quite a lot of free time on their hands and might do a lot of cross stitching to pass the centuries.

I really liked how this one turned out. I am not very good at borders and this art nouveau-ish style frame is probably just about the best one I have done on a chart.

So an update here folks. I have been getting a LOT of requests for the link to this chart but that link has long been defunked and I have not been blogging for a long time. If someone knows why this one has been blowing up let me know where you heard about it.

In the mean time you can download the chart by CLICKING HERE for the large PNG image. You can save and print that out or stitch from your computer or whatever.

The DMC thread colour key is included below. As you can see it is pretty simple so you can make it whatever colours you want.

I have downloaded the pattern and have already started working on it. I was wondering if you were going to make a pattern for 'Farewell' too? It would work great as a set.

Would love to see it when it is done. I probably will at some stage do one for farewell. You are the first person who has asked! And even some other elvish phrases. I think my favourites would be Speak Friend and Enter and May the stars shine upon the hour of our meeting. Will see if I can do a similar farewell chart early this year for you.
