The beauty of thy leaves disclose:
The winter's past, the tempests fly,
Soft gales breathe gently thro the sky.
The lark sweet warbling on the wind
Salutes the gay return of spring
(Dr. Wm. Broome, 1820)
Spring has indeed arrived with flowers everywhere. Today I want to share flowers with you from both my yard and from a couple of needlework projects.
Back in 2005, Veronique Million from France stitched the little bag from Accept This Posey for her friend's birthday. Veronique wrote, “I finished my present to Lynn. This is one of your designs I personalized for her. I changed it to blue as the lining fabric is blue and green (shown above the bag).”
Niky from northern Italy made a sweet little bookmark using a part of this design. Isn’t that a creative idea?
Look at what Catherine Harb from Nantes, France did with the design! She wrote “I stitched this lovely project for a friend of mine in 2003. I made the stitching and the finishing for the accessories and gave the main sampler to my framer to have it finished as a box.”
