CROSS STITCH PATTERN DESIGNED BY RIVERDRIFT HOUSE
In the designer's own words:
“Dressed in their Sunday best, may I introduce the Welsh Folkies, my ancestors! Knitting just a few more rows before chapel, and surrounded by daffodils (Welsh Lilies), I included lots of references to Wales to work in traditional motif-style. These include a castle flying the Welsh national flag, sheep - dyed pink and red for fun, some traditional woollen weaving swatches to form part of the border, ancient Celtic stone-carved monuments, fleur-de-lys (emblem of the Prince of Wales), a Welsh dresser, a little dragon, a Welsh harp, a chapel with musical notes for the male-voice choir in concert, a steam train, some Welsh love-spoons (traditionally carved by Welsh men as a wedding gift for their beloved and on other special anniversaries and occasions), hearts for the anthem ‘Calon Lan’ (‘Pure Heart’) sung before the Welsh team play rugby, sailing boats at sea, and a lower border of mountains and valleys set between the black and yellow flag of St David.”
Creative Poppy says:
Riverdrift House's Folkies, are cross stitch patterns featuring couples wearing traditional folk costumes of different regions.
The black hats may seem a little austere but the whole piece is full of cheerful spring colors.
