CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Gracewood Stitches
In the words of designer Kathy Bungard:
What is 'Serendity"? Where did this word come from? It has a great origin - coined by author, Horace Walpole, suggested by The Three Princes of Serendip, the title of a fairy tale in which the heroes ‘were always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things they were not in quest of’.
Don't you just love that? Well that is pretty much what happens when I design a pattern. I start with a general idea and find as I go along that I end up in places I hadn't thought I was going.
So here is my second Serendity Sampler and hope you'll enjoy the journey into unexpected things you might find along the way.
Creative Poppy says:
There is an interesting combination of styles here: a stencil-like motif with three chrysanthemum, a pattern inspired by wooden Korean screens , a classic 18th century hanging ornament and an Art deco band evocative of clouds or wind. Framing the piece on two sides is a ribbon-like border of small daisies.
