I made these roses in 2004, when we first came to this house.
The idea started with finding four wooden frames. I liked them so much, that wanted to do some flowers as a set.
I had a few cross stitch designs books from India. These were very small books which had cross stitch designs taken from other big cross stitch pattern books. the book size -10’ / 8’. The patterns were quite small too.
After going through these books, I had a desire of doing some roses. From all the rose patterns I chose four.
The choice was for two big roses with buds for two frames, and two medium roses for the other two.
Then I decided to do the patterns in four different colour schemes. The interesting part was choosing the dark to light shades of the same colour, to synchronise with the actual patterns. The details of the frames from the next post
