Krista says "My high quality cross stitch kits and patterns are inspired by historic Mediterranean textiles".
Kits include specialty cross stitch fabric imported from Greece serged for your convenience, along with DMC floss, John James size 24 tapestry needle and full color SOC (symbols on chart) pattern.
This compelling design originates in a stunning tablecloth a friend of mine shared with me. Her mother, Despina, stitched it for her prika, a collection of embroidered tablecloths, cushion covers, and other handmade textiles that family members gift to a Greek bride so she can beautify her new home, a tradition which dates back centuries in Greece.
Featuring a vibrant colorway of garnet, coral, blue, ecru, and golden olive that is just as stylish today as it was 25 years ago when Despina originally stitched it, the stylized anemone motif is further ornamented by a wonderful use of backstitches to throw the bright colors into high relief. A charming little zigzag pattern and chevron bands complete the design.
This small BitKit makes an embroidered mat that is 6x8 inches finished.
Stitch count: 67 x 74sts
