I stitched this Garland Of Roses pillow many years ago with soft pink silk thread on antique ivory linen. It's a lovely cross stitch pattern I found at a French company that eventually went out of business. Ever since I posted the pillow on my blog, my customers have asked me where to buy the pattern. I have taken their suggestions to heart and designed my own version. I'm so happy to offer it here in my petite shop!
You may wish to stitch the pattern in your favorite color. I provide some of my favorite color choices with the instructions. The pillow shown above is stitched with soft-pink silk on linen. It looks lovely stitched with orchid-pink silk on flax-linen or white-silk on cottage-rose linen. For a French farmhouse look, stitch it with white-silk on Amsterdam blue-linen or raw-linen. Red-silk on white linen or flax-linen is a classic choice. I always stitch my pieces on 32-count Zweigart linen. You can find a nice selection of Zweigart linen online. The possibilities are endless. Experience the joy of hand embroidery.
The finished size of the pattern is approximately 8.5 by 8.5 inches
