Thessaly Floral is a beautiful embroidery design inspired by a brass tray I found I found in a flea market in Thessaloniki. Worked in soft greens and golden olive with coral, blue, and garnet accents, it looks lovely displayed on a table or as a wall hanging.
This is a terrific design for beginners as you learn basic embroidery stitches and there is a helpful how-to video on my Demos page.
Avlea's high quality kits include the design stamped with waterproof archival ink on 100% Kona cotton (so you can wash the design after if you like), DMC 100% cotton embroidery floss, John James size 7 embroidery needle, how to embroider instruction booklet, and a reusable stitch diagram (simply tape it to a window or light box and trace onto the fabric of your choice), and 6' bamboo embroidery hoop.
Stitches: Backstitch, satin stitch, Roumanian stitch, French knot, chain stitch, Pekinese stitch, seed stitch fill
Finished size: 6 inches in diameter
