Inspired by the Brothers Grimm’s fairy tale of Sleeping Beauty and the ever growing hedge of Roses I made up this design, again in a Mandala Shape for my Anniversary in 2012 – celebrating 15 years of being “Châtelaine”….
You can see (and stitch!) this hedge of roses, growing from one side to the other, until the entire castle is covered with the scrolling vines.
Lots of beads and crystals, different threads and besides cross stitch a lot of Special Stitches make this embroidery entertaining.
The size is 232 x 326 stitches
