This very special design is the first heirloom I embroidered for my granddaughter, Myriam. I saw the original motif on an embroidered cushion cover made in the Cyclades Islands in the 1700s and I fell in love with its fresh and cheery flowers and vines. Once I added corner motifs, it looked like a lovely fenced garden. I kept the original soft colorway of yellow and green which is rather unique among Greek island embroideries and when worked on ivory linen, it makes for a stunning heirloom!


Finished size on 30 count: 20”x20” (actual area of embroidery 18x18”)

Stitch count: 270 x 270 sts/21752 sts


Please note: Due to the discontinuation of Legacy Dower Linen 30 ct Coconut Macaroon, I have only 15 kits of this available with the Legacy Dower Linen shown in the photos. This is a premium-grade linen that has an excellent hand and longevity as it is designed for heirloom pieces such as this design.
