From the Designer - Lake Como Mandala

"I am absolutely in love with these land- and waterscapes there in Northern Italy. Oh, how I wish I would be there now, all is a lot warmer then here ...But at least I can transfer all my wishes, memories and dreams of this area into cross stitch for you! 


There will be Villas in all shades of Mediterranean colors, Acacias and Mulberry trees... Palms and Bougainvilleas - the lake and the ornaments of the age-old buildings..... The only thing you will need to add is a glass of wine and some Bruschetta...nomnom!"
