Fresh Lime Cross Stitch Pattern

$4.81 USD

Citrus fruit in cross stitch

Looking for a something cool, clean, and a natural? We think you’ll love stitching this freshly cut lime in DMC Parrot Green, Moss and Golden Yellow.



Fresh Lime cross stitch pattern was inspired by a pomological watercolour commissioned by the US Department of Agriculture in the early 20th century. It’s a simple design of a lime cut in half, then superimposed over the whole fruit.

The Project

This cross stitch project can be stitched in a couple of days or over a weekend. The finished piece measures 17.2 x 13.2cm (4,657 stitches) when completed on 14 count Aida cloth and will definitely freshen up a canvas tote, ecobag, or small rustic frame.

The Painting

Pomology is a branch of botany that studies the cultivation of fruit. From 1886 to 1942 the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) commissioned 21 artists to paint and draw common species of fruit and nut plants. These would be for used in USDA yearbooks and bulletins issued to growers.
