I dug this project out the other day. It was almost finished and I had forgotten all about it. Finished the rest of it in one day–just in time for First Fruits.
My second Persephone inspired piece. I based my design on a mixture of traditional pomegranate cross stitch and neolithic and Mycenaean motifs from Leslie Graham McCallum’s Pattern Motifs: A source book.
Each one of these tiny little pomegranates has 132 cross stitches in it.
