This is a cross-stitch design of two flowers permanently locked together and surrounded by a border of green vines. The hand dyed floss exaggerates the shading of the two very different colors of flowers, bringing warm yellow and orange shades and cool purple and blue shades together. The design was stitched on 28 count Jazlyn Jade fabric which compliments the thread colors without overpowering them. It is also shown with DMC floss on Bay Leaf 28 count Jobelan so a comparison can be made between hand dyed and regular floss.
