Yellow Rose

This was another flea market find, the Yellow Rose. I love roses, it went with our bedroom colors, & I was fascinated by the simplicity of the stitching. I’m not sure what kind of stitching it is actually.

Our ANG Main Line Chapter is going to do the Soldier Family Kissing Pillows as our next community project. So, this is in honor of Geraldine (Jerry) Trappey) & her Yellow Rose Chapter of EGA. She has supplied the chart & supportive information for our efforts.

I looked at the photo and can’t work it out either. Usually flea market finds are cross stitch or basketweave tent – and this is neither. Please do let us know if you ever find out!

Looks like Swedish Weaving to me. The two verticle threads are the “floats”. The stitches are actually loops of floss that go through the floats.
