Miss Sunflower (small pattern)
CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Kateryna - Stitchy Princess
The Sunflower is Ukraine's national flower and graces the countryside in summer.
This design is by Kateryna, a cross stitch designer based in Ukraine, drawing her inspiration in folk tales and nature. Here she depicts a young woman, her face covered with freckles from the summer sunshine. She is pictured in traditional dress with a white skirt frilled with embroidery and trimmings and is wearing high heeled shoes. Her redish-blond hair is woven the traditional way into an extra long braid. She stands in a field of sunflowers, bees buzzing and two large white butterflies watching over her. A stylized sun and square clouds suggest a hot summer day.
There are two versions of the Sunflower girl. This is the smaller pattern measuring about 6 x 6 inch (on 14ct/28ct). View larger Miss Sunflower pattern here.
The stitched piece (pictured) was worked on 32 Ct. Zweigart Murano 3984/6083 in Sage Green. Any light green, beige or grey background will be suitable, provided there is enough contrast with the white.
