This piece includes motifs from old samplers and represent hope (birdcage), playfulness (butterflies) and youth (flowers).
Threads are bright and include shades of green and pink and give a special new life to old symbolism. It is also a teaching piece for special stitches and it is very easy and quick to realize.
