BitKit Despina's Anemone Cross Stitch Kit - Avlea Folk Embroidery

left in stock in

Low in store inventory, may be subject to change

From Avlea:

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.

Stitch count: 67 x 74/1822 sts/2280 backs.
Finished size: 6x8 inches (including hem).

BitKit includes Traditional Groundcloth imported from Greece, DMC floss, John James size 24 tapestry needle, and full-color pattern. This design is also available as a regular size kit.
