CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Tempting Tangles
The quote on this stitched work is an extract from Peter Pan's original story, written by James M. Barrie. It actually gives the directions to Neverland as,
"second to the right, and straight on till morning"
“So come with me, where dreams are born, and time is never planned.
Just think of happy things,
and your heart will fly on wings, forever,
in Never Never Land!”
The design is beautifully composed with a perfectly symetrical star motif going all the way across the design, as if pointing in a direction, and the two quotes fitted in between in a playful and haphazard way.
The pattern is an easy stitch with full cross stitches and backstitch, and only 3 colors used. It was stitched using Dinky Dyes overdyed Silk, creating the wonderful variations of color. Deborah A. Dick, Tempting Tangles designer recommends "working over 2 threads of fabric on even weave or linen, on a count of at least 28- 35 count. That way you can achieve the nicest color flow due to the nature of beautiful variegated floss. It is best to complete each stitch as you work."
