As you maybe have noticed (and I have blogged about it before) I change the top right picture on my blog every month. My grandmother made these embroideries sometime in the 70's and most of them are from the book "Korsstygnsrosor och andra mönster" (1974) by the wonderful Gerda Bengtsson, famous for her cross stitch patterns of plants and flowers. I can't find any information about her in either Swedish or English, but you can read more about her here in Italian.
