No Mud, No Lotus - Cross-stitch chart

‘No mud, no lotus’ has been a bit of a mantra for me during this hard time, reminding me that beauty and strength can be created out of difficulty. The saying is based on a longer Buddhist proverb, simplified by the monk and writer Thich Nhat Hanh. I hope it reminds you of your own resilience in these challenging times.

This design has a stitch count of 121w x 85h and only uses full crosses over two. In my model, I used one strand of floss over two threads of linen. It is suitable for beginners to advanced stitchers, and can be stitched on Aida, linen or evenweave of any count that you prefer.
