Oh, all you Springtime Lovers.... have I got a new pattern for you!
It's my new SPRINGTIME WREATH, that is filled with all the happiest things of Spring --
pastel flowers, decorated eggs, and a soft chick and bunny.
There's so much going on with this wreath, that it's hard to take it all in, isn't it?
When I started stitching it up, I began counting out from the center point,
working the velvet ribbons and bow first; then adding all the eggs, doing them one by one.
The bunny and chick came next (done in touchable-softBella Lusso merino wool);
then I wove the small basket and filled it with plump eggs.
Adding lots of pastel flowers came next -
daffodils, pansies, open tulips, and tiny pink blossoms were fitted between all the larger items
on the wreath. I selected a variegated ThreadworX #5 pearl thread for the wreath foliage,
that is worked in an easy Pavilion Diamond variation to fill the background
behind all the wreath items.
After everything was stitched, I finished my wreath by adding a handful of beads (included with the pattern). I also went back and outlined each egg with a simple Stem Stitch, using the softly variegated ThreadworX, to make each egg stand out a bit from the wreath greenery.
Like any stitchery project,
if you break down this SPRINGTIME WREATH into manageable steps, and
focus on each step at a time, it really isn't so difficult.... and as the piece begins to take shape
right before your eyes, you can celebrate the process (as well as the joys of spring) --
and take pride in creating something that you'll enjoy displaying every year!
So if you're up for a new wreath to display in your house, please hop on over
