CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Gracewood Stitches
Kathy Bungard designer of Gracewood Stitches describes this pattern in her own words:
'Tussie-Mussie' is a Victorian era term for a small bouquet of flowers, sometimes called a nosegay.
This pattern was inspired by one of the kindest ladies that I've ever known. Her name was Hazel and
she taught Cotillion, ballroom dancing, for many years. Those who had the pleasure of being her students
still remember her fondly.
Hazel was known for her intricate couples formations for dance exhibitions, this design attempts to
capture the movement of her choreography. I can't think of those Cotillion days without seeing the wrist
corsages or the 'Tussie-Mussies' pinned to dresses.
Creative Poppy says:
A wonderful abstract pattern, with beautiful movement. You can pick your own set of embroidery threads so as to match your interior and display your needlework inside your home. See below a picture showing more contrast between the 2 colors.
