This first design is my contribution toward Sampler September stitching. This sampler design features night blooming flowers, nocturnal animals, and even fireflies! The chart also includes a smaller design - just the alphabet and animals for stitchers who don't want to stitch the larger version.
The model is stitched on 40 count "Wood Smoke" linen from Lakeside Linens" Stitch count is 269 wide and 254 high. (The smaller alphabet is 216 wide and 120 high.)

The text of the design comes from a poem by Sarah Williams (which has been published under two different titles and with slightly different text). I've used the version "Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light; I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night."
The design includes the following motifs: luna moth, barn owl, leopard moth, beaver, flying fox, kiwi, badger, fox, rabbit, possum (and baby possums), hedgehog and sloth, as well as a variety of flowers that bloom in the evening or at night.
