CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Barbara Ana Designs
The cross stitch piece depicts a pensive young woman, with a mane of red hair flowing in the wind, as if it were blown by her thoughts.
A discreet Quaker pattern adorns her hair, in the manner of a Jacquard weave.
The thoughts and dreams of the young girl follow the seasons with a spring full of flowers, a sunny seaside summer, a golden autumn with motifs appearing as earings and mingling with her hair; and finally the end of the year under a curtain of snow.
The cross stitch pattern lists 14 DMC floss colors. The stunning duck blue background fabric is 32ct Lugana- Murano from Zweigart. It is a 52% cotton, 48% modal evenweave, easy to stitch, as well as to wash and iron once your work is finished.
You can also cross stitch the pattern on a neutral background such as raw linen, but the effect will be much more subdued.
