This beautiful design is a favorite among needleworkers in Greece and I have seen it in numerous variations over the years, from small table mats with a single motif to larger table runners with multiple motifs in a half-drop repeat. A simple two-tone palette with a light shade outlined in a darker shade is a classic technique used in many folk embroideries and is shown here to great effect. The delicate scroll work, two cross motifs, and a small palmette flourish create a design resplendent with ancient art motifs.
