Edwardian Lady

I am happy to show you the third in my series of historical ladies for Cross Stitch Collection. Coming in the next issue # 223 is the Edwardian Lady. With grace and elegance she is dressed in a delicate spring tea dress just perfect for a stroll in the garden and gathering peonies for the afternoon table. I love this period in fashion history and thoroughly enjoyed creating this special design for you. Pretty beads and some metallic threads add to the style and delicacy of her dress. She is stitched on Polstitches wonderful ‘serenade’ 28 count Jobelan to add to the serenely soft mood of the design. See the Floss and Embellishment pages for more information.
