11 count Aida – 24.5 inches (W) X 37.3 inches (H)

Please make sure to add some inches to the design area for the final cut of material to use. The sizing is strictly the design size and not the size of material needed. Recommendation is 2-3 inches PER SIDE - so both width and height should be adjusted 4-6 inches of fabric for working piece. I personally prefer to add 6 inches minimum.

The Inspiration:
What if Medusa was not cursed by ugliness but by beauty? Would she be less deadly or more so? I believe more so. Venture into the midst of the battle between beauty and brawn. And stitch yourself into the mythology.

If you've gotten this far...I hope this has inspired you!

Thank you for looking and reading!

Have a great day!

I love this design for a pillow. I also wanted rustic but soft. The seller has been the best to communicate with. I asked her so many questions, but yet she was always happy, gracious and helpful! Started this. Not an easy pattern, but the detail will be so worth it.

Dorothy, I was getting ready for bed and decided to check my emails.....and there you were with the finished product. You made me cry.........I am 73 yrs old and have been cross stitching for over 40 years and never, I mean never have I ever seen a pattern so clearly printed, clearly stated, soooooo professionally done, so beautifully explained as what you just provided............I have no words..............thank you is not good enough. What you went through to produce this for me, I don't have the words to express my gratitude. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. The finished product is going to a well deserved police officer at Christmas time. As I wipe the tears, I smile because I met someone like you. You are awesome! Thank you for being YOU!
