Here she is the first in a series of four historic ladies starting in the next issue, # 219, of Cross Stitch Collection. In rich royal colors and embellished with Mill Hill pearl seed beads and golden Kreinik  threads we catch a glimpse of this lovely Medieval Lady as she strolls through the castle garden holding a fresh cut white rose. I’ve chosen  28 count ‘avalon’ Jobelan from Polstitches to set a mood of beauty shrouded in the mist of times long ago.

    Your best one yet!!! I have started stitching her and I am in LOVE with this design and its colours! Amazing art piece. Plan on doing all 4 in the series. Even bought the frames so they match.

    Hello Joan, at the moment I’m stitching the Fabulous flapper and love every minute of it. I want to stich all the 4 ladies. But I miss the chart from the first one. The Mediëval Lady. I tried to buy Cross Stitch Collection issue 219. All sold out. Are you gonna make a chartpack from this design? I hope so. Thank you and many greetings from the Netherlands. Annet Keijsers
