Narrow panel, probably for a towel rack. Originally the background was an allover bright red, but probably that was not included in the original pattern. A two color background, light in the centre and darker in the background, matches similar patterns, and blue contrasts better with the brown color range of the motif. Of course, suit your own taste.

Chart only. A magnificent square embroidered frame, in the middle a rather small bouquet. This pattern occurred on two ebay items, but we could not secure permission from either seller to show the originals. On one the background was two shades of purple, on the other two shades of red, and the bouquets were placed slightly differently. This pattern has been reworked so the frame is symmetrical and the bouquet has been adapted to fit properly. We've picked two shades of blue as background; feel free to choose your own.
