Flower Power Cross Stitch
Flower Power Blue Cross Stitch

Designed by Mary Self
I am always captivated by the graphic designs on ceramics so when I saw the Elayne Fallon Weston Teapot from Staffordshire Potteries I just had to stitch it. It is so reminiscent of the 1960s and 70s that as I was stitching the cool blue/teal/lime colourway I wondered how it would look in hot red/orange/pink colours.
