Hi, Stephanie,
 
I can't help on the stitch part, but I can offer a few other suggestions.
 
The best color plate I've seen is in this book:
King, Donald, and Santina Levey. The Victoria & Albert Museum's Textile
Collection: Embroidery in Britain from 1200 to 1750. New York: Canopy Books,
1993. 
 
It's quite good enough to enlarge.
 
Also, I have a lot of the patterns charted in various sections here:

Good luck with it!

I have decided to replicate a German sampler from around 1500-1550 that is in
the V&A museum.  It is done on linen fabric with silk thread.  The stitches are
cross stitch and long armed cross stitch.  Has anyone seen this in person or
found a pattern that would tell me which stitch to use for each part of the
sampler?  any help would be appreciated.
 
The Museum number of the work is T.114-1956.  If you put that in the search box,
it will bring up the work.  Or, you can go to this page:
