In ancient Rome, mosaics were a common feature in private homes and public buildings. The "Guard Dog from the House of Paquius Proculus", was created by the artist to surprise a visitor, when arriving at the house. Peggy has designed this pillow based on the original mosaics that she saw while walking through ancient Rome and Pompeii. A wonderful project to stitch! Be sure to check out our blog post, for more information and ideas on unique stitches that really make this pillow come alive.

Please read more about how to stitch this design on her blog post here: http://www.needlepaint.com/blog/2017/02/09/bringing-ancient-mosaics-to-needlepaint/
