This design originates in a vintage 1940s embroidery booklet found in the basement of a needlework shop in Thessaloniki yet its lively flowers are just as beautiful today!

 

A charming border design of little flowers set off with intricate corner detailing. The center section can be left blank so a candle or vase can sit there when you have this lovely little embroidery displayed on a table or dresser, or you can embroider an additional design in the center (for example, a pretty monogram of your choosing) and it could be made into a pillow.

 

Finished size: 7-1/2 x 10-1/2

Stitch count: 58 x 89 sts

 

My high quality kits come with everything you need to make the embroidery in the photos--26 count 100% cotton Traditional Groundcloth (imported from Greece), DMC floss, full color SOC (symbol-on-chart) pattern, along with a John James size 24 tapestry needle. The raw edges of the fabric are serged for your convenience, so you can start stitching as soon as you open the kit!
