I love how simple and elegant this Garland Of Roses pattern looks. I enjoyed stitching it with one color. For me, it's meditative and relaxing not to constantly change threads; Zen stitching at its best!
The pattern is cross stitched with orchid-colored Splendor silk floss on 32 count antique ivory linen. The colors are soft and feminine. They go well with my eclectic French decor. I bought extra linen and had the finished piece made into a pillow with matching cording on the edge for a little embellishment.

I dream about having the sofa (below) as a home for all my finished pillows. I have a love affair with French furniture and French embroidery. When I'm in need of some eye candy or inspiration I go here and here.
