This is the last piece in this set of four roses.
This is a big single rose with two buds. the design was taken again from the same set of books, this time from a cushion design.
The book had a flower bouquet design for a cushion, I took the rose and the buds were lifted from other smaller bouquets. then they were all put together to form this particular frame.

pink rose-4

All the four frames together-

roses in cross stitch

With this I complete this set.
This was the first time I worked with evenweave aida cloth, earlier works were done in matti cloth bought in India, where the weave is rectangular. That made the patterns ablong instead of square . Any pattern will look compressed or elongated depending on how we use the matti. However much we work, there was always a sense of dissatisfaction, when the work was complete.
I literally drooled over the aida cloth when I first saw it here. I sometimes use them on my tunics too.
