Vintage rose: a new freebie for you

Christmas holidays are coming and we would like to wish you all the best with a little freebie…

This lovely cross stitch rose is taken from the book Vintage Cross Stitch Flowers. Our designer, Valentina Sardu, reinterpreted it in her blackwork-plus-cross-stitch style, and here you can see the result!

Blackwork, worked in black and gold, adds a special touch to the vintage motif. The finished embroidery can be framed, used as a quilt block, or turned into a simple ornament completed with a handmade tassel like that in the pictures.
