I recently visited the city of Stockholm (Sweden), where I had the privilege to view some beautiful museums and stunning collections of textiles and folk art. The collection of the Nordiska Museet (the Nordic Museum) was especially inspiring. An old felt appliqué cushion that I saw there inspired this pattern, featuring a cute couple surrounded by a circular design of tulips and other flowers. I translated it in a style common to Swedish cross-stitch embroidery.

This pattern measures 151 by 151 stitches – stitched over two threads on 32 count linen it would measure approximately 9.5 by 9.5 inches (24 by 24cm).
