I had the pleasure of being able to stitch this trio of roses for Cross Stitch Collection, issue239. These blooms are inspried by the beautiful 'Margaret Merril' rose. All three designs have been kept simple to allow the beauty of the blooms to shine through. Stitched with whole cross stitches and plenty of blocks of colour it is easy to count from one area to another. Each of the three designs have interesting elements to stitch - the leaves on the budding rose are delicate and the single rose is a detailed study with clever shading of several tones of pink.
There is also a chance to win a gorgeous rose from David Austin Roses, so be quick as the closing date to enter is Thursday 21 August.
