Garland of roses (9 of 9)

The last of the small "insets" for the "composite" image is this beautiful garland of roses. This little design--planned for 18-count canvas--will be a bigger, if stitched on lower-count canvas, and so could be made into a little purse, for example. Two of the little designs worked side-by-side into a single work could become a case for glasses, or a cell phone. As smaller designs, they also really can be stitched on leftover pieces of canvas, and can function as insets, even in other projects. (As usual for this "composite" image, I drew the design freehand on my StitchPainter program, and was inspired by the Victorian needlepoint book; see bibliography and link list.)
