This beautiful design was inspired by a little Byzantine ornamented motif that was most likely used in either an illuminated manuscript or as part of a fresco decorative scheme. It features a lovely rose--reminiscent of a Tudor rose--in the center, encircled by a charming vine border. This is a terrific design for beginners as you learn five of the most common embroidery stitches.
