The Return of the Swallows table round is hand embroidered on Belgium Linen with silk and cotton threads. It finishes up to 24-inch diameter and can be made at 20-inches. The design is worked in a variety of stitches including the satin stitch, buttonhole stitch, fishbone stitch, long & short stitch, stem stitch, raised stem stitch, back stitch, and French knots. This design play homage to the San Juan Capistrano Mission and the swallows that return there to nest. The history of the "blue bird" and its use in embroidery designs dates well into the early teens, 1920s and well into the 1930's, making this stylized version well suited for many home styles. In addition, the use of blue threads with warmer reds, browns and greens allows this sweet fella to fit into any home!
