Barbara Skelton has drawn inspiration from the Art Nouveau period, from 1930-1950's nostalgia and from historical decorative art from around the world to produce the 'Amathusia' series of cross-stitch designs.  (The word Amathusia is derived from the spot in Cyprus she has now escaped to!)

You can see all the work on the Amathusia web site (click on the logo above) - all the kits are available through Classic Embroidery.
