A striking needlework image of the Taj Mahal, a framed picture featuring an elephant wearing a brightly-hued rug, a footstool adorned with 2 embroidered peacocks: these cross-stitch projects capture all the heat and color of India. The lustrous patterns decorate cushions, box lids, bookmarks, cards, bell pulls, bags, and more. Intricate motifs, beautiful beadwork, and lavish metallic threads adorn many of the designs, resulting in ornate and sumptuous items that are a pleasure to create and to own.
