CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Tempting Tangles
A pile of one's favorite books, all by the same author, Jane Austen. Featured here are Emma, Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion. Jane Austens' heroines are high-spirited, intelligent young women, set in the 19th century genteel society of England. Stitching this design will surely make you want to (re)read the books. Or it may be the other way round?
In this cross stitch design, in addition to the leather-bound books - with one wide open with pages flipped open - there is an elegant little cut glass ink well with stopper, and a blue feather pen. The same blue ink has been used to write the quote in careful calligraphy: "There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort"
Like most of the designer's patterns, this chart features a number of small embellishments and specialty stitches such as Algerian eyelets and a Sofia stitch which is a variation of a Smyrna stitch.
