I have been cross stitching for more years than I care to remember and never found a pattern that was detailed (and complicated) enough to make me happy. I have completed more than half of Joseph Nigg's La Corbeille des Fleurs and it is just gorgeous. Using the blended colors makes it so detailed it does look like an oil painting. Sure is much more than a craft store has to offer. Thank you for such a beautiful pattern.
