The Victorians adored florals, and these cross stitch designs evoke the era beautifully. Here, you will find William Morris-inspired borders and motifs of larkspur and violets, while the delicate lily-of-the-valley plant makes a simple yet pretty picture. Romantic pink and white lilies appear as a charming motif, and finally there is a 'home-sweet-home' message, bordered with entwining roses and colourful daisies, which would have been the perfect addition to any Victorian home. This series of cross-stitch chart books brings together the work of your favourite cross stitch designers. Each title in the series contains 10 pages of charted cross stitch designs on one popular subject. Every chart includes an easy-to-use key, and an inspirational colour photograph of each finished piece shows the fantastic results to be achieved. Each chart book also provides handy stitching tips and advice, stitch diagrams, guidance on techniques and materials, and a thread conversion chart to ensure you have all the information required to complete every design featured.
