Embroiderers will welcome this delightful collection of charted designs by Gerda Bengtsson, considered one of the greatest living designers of counted cross-stitch designs. Here are more than 40 exquisite florals, including such favorites as Buttercups, Anemone, Pansies, Spring Flowers, Iceland Poppy, Crowberry, Lapland Rhododendron, Wild Fruit, Sweet Violet, Lady's Mantle, Stone Bramble, and Hare's-Foot Clover. All of the designs are color keyed to both D.M.C. and Danish Flower Thread embroidery floss, and because the chart makes it easy to vary the size of the design they can be used to decorate anything from small pillows to bedspreads. The patterns lend themselves to use not only in cross-stitch, but also needlepoint, rug-hooking, crochet, and other forms of counted thread embroidery.
