Hope Comforts Love Cross Stitch Pattern

$12.44

How about cross stitching something different this year? It’s a mythological scene that’s beautifully androgynous and queer, and certainly a step away from traditional embroidery projects.

 

Description

Hope Comforts Love cross stitch pattern was inspired by the 1901 painting Hope Comforting Love in Bondage by Sidney Harold Meteyard. In the scene, the Roman God Cupid is being comforted by Spes, the Goddess of Hope.

You’ll probably notice that both the Gods are androgynous in nature, taking on the characteristics of both the male and female genders. We love adore art that pushes the boundaries and challenges stereotypes. How about you?

The Project

This is a very large, full coverage cross stitch project, measuring 90.7cm  x 88.4 cm when stitched on 14 count Aida cloth (500 x 487 stitches). To avoid any headaches, we recommend using  Pattern Keeper App to manage this project, as there was really no way of differentiating the symbols. Look in your download pack for an extra PK chart.
