Oh I think Spring is here! My daffodils are blooming and the sun is shining and it is suppose to hit 70 degrees before the week is out. It has been a very mild winter here, but that doesn't lessen my appreciation of warmer weather. So to celebrate this lovely weather I have a flowery little piece to share.
This is called Remember Me and was inspired by the embroidery of Ann York who was 14 in 1824. This is another piece from A Schoolgirl's Work by Barb Adams and Alma Adams - the Blackbird Design gals. This is the second piece I've stitched from this book and there are a couple more I want to get to. I love this book but then I love all things BBD!
This finished about 5 inches square but it is packed with decorative stitches. Lazy Daisy, Eyelets and I put in a couple of Smyrna cross stitches. And again I added one of those heart shaped mother of pearl buttons I love so much.
I'm very happy with the frame on this piece. It is a deep wine with a touch of antiqued gold. I thought it complemented the rose colored flosses and the gold wasn't overpowering. I enjoy picking out the moldings for the frame and it is exciting to see it all completed. Bev at Joann's does a great job. I'm so glad I've found a framer who understands needlework.
Well I'm off to do some errands and enjoy this lovely day. Hope the weather is nice where you are!
