Object Description
Framed embroidery, cross stitch, multicolored floral design. The design consists of two blue flowers, three red flowers, and two red flowers. All of the flowers are made up of a variety of colors. For a red, purple, and two blue flowers, the centers can be seen, which consist of yellow outlined in black, which is in turn surrounded by white. The leaves are thin and found in clusters.
Origin
Mina Tiftiksis lived in Myteline, Greece. This was intended to be used as a decoration. The cloth looks as though it was specifically made for embroidery, due to the thread count.
