CROSS STITCH PATTERN DESIGNED BY Shannon Christine Designs
The focus of this pattern is on the graceful peacock's head. It is surrounded by an amazing array of motifs, beautifully arranged so that the global impression one gets is of a joyful burst of colors. The pattern is quite caracteristic of designer Shannon Christine's unique style.
Look close and you will notice the exquisite combination of motifs, blending the traditional paisley design with contemorary flowers, a unique approach that lends a modern touch to the design. Surrounding the paisley designs are more arabesques, leaves and flowers, each an intricate combination of cross stitch and beading.
As with every one of Shannon Christine's designs, the chart comes in both a color version you can use for the cross stuitch, and a black and white one where the beadwork stands out in color against the cross stitch symbols. This is very helpful when you get to the beading stage.
The stitched work is a fabulous piece of needlework.
