Shades of Strength Cross Stitch Pattern


Why buy wall art when you can create your own elegant cross stitch picture? Evoking the grand artistry and skill of the master artist Michelangelo, the Shades of Strength cross stitch pattern will enrich any decor. This cross stitch pattern originated as an original chalk and charcoal drawing based on one of the figures of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling. The simple tones echo the original drawing, and the colour scheme makes following your pattern quite simple as there are so few colours. This is one of two drawings that was done in a master drawing class in New Zealand. Translated into a cross stitch picture, this pattern will add a sophisticated elegance to any decor. Stitched on 14 count fabric, this pattern will fit into most standard sized poster frames when completed. This pattern is full stitches only, with no back stitch. This pattern is a PDF download, so you can get started on your project right away!
