A counted cross stitch pattern. One of two patterns inspired by the designs on the back of a bronze mirror found at Trelan Bahow, Cornwall. It dates back to the 1st century BCE and is now housed in the British Museum.
Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year and the sun is at the height of its powers. This is reflected in the hot fiery shades in the threads.
The pattern file includes two versions of the chart (one in black andwhite and one in colour), symbol key and colour image of finished design.
The second file includes basic instructions and stitching tips.
Also available: Winter Solstice or buy both designs together for a discounted price. See other listings for details.
