Medieval Garden (cross stitch)

This is a project I have started many years ago. I worked diligently on it for some time, then put it aside. The letters and the flowers come from a French magazine Marie-Claire Idées. I made my own color choices and the result was somewhat lacking in term of contrast.

I started outlining the letters, the flowers and the leaves with contrasting colors. When I look at them now, I’m reminded of medieval paintings or drawings depicting a garden scene. Hence the name.
