This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Return of Persephone designed from a painting by Sir Frederick Leighton shows that according to Greek Mythology, Demeter, who is Persephone's mother, is gladly greeting her daughter who has been in the clutches of Hades for a long time, and she is welcoming her safe return. Prior to that, Demeter had gone around scorching everything in her path until she was able to locate the whereabouts of her daughter. She left no stone unturned, and this scene shows the strong bond and relationship between mother and daughter. Only full cross stitches are used in our patterns. No blended colors are used. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect.
