This is my design inspired by Chinese ethnic needlework.
Cross stitch was used in Chinese ethnic needlework for hundreds of years but did not recevied as much attention as deserved because of lack of proper research and documentation. The patterns shown in Chinese antique needlework contain astonishing art and cultural elements. These kinds of antique needlework tend to be large items ranging from scarves, apron, pillowcase, vest, undergarment, to bed sheet, curtain, wall hanging piece. It will not be feasible to reproduce those pieces. Instead, I try to display the beauty of those ethnic work by extraction and adaptation from the originals.
It was amazing to find such a variety of different butterfly motifs in Chinese ethnic cross stitch works. This sampler is made to show some of the butterfly motifs I found.
More information about the background of this sampler and more sharing about Chinese ethnic needlework can be found in my website and my Facebook Page:
This sampler is stitched on 30 count beige linen with DMC floss. The stitch count is 170 x 170.
