Have I got a treat for all you stitchers that have taken my cyber classes in the past:
a brand new, Springy cyber class piece that make you smile every time you look at it....
And it's called DAFFODIL TIME:
The idea for this fun design came as a surprise to me. For all the years I've been teaching
FLEUR-DE-LIS with it's bright blue iris, it never occurred to me to design a companion
piece - until I was posting the iris photo on Instagram, and something about
the angle of the photo made me do a double-take and say to myself, "Hey, wouldn't
it be fun to create a daffodil design in the same layout?"
So I did! And I had a lot of fun figuring out four different floral patterns
that I could highlight around the center daffodil, creating little flowers
that sorta had a daffodil look to them. And working with the bright Springtime colors
was definitely another perk - and much appreciated during the cold grey winter months!
Here's a close-up look at a few of the stitch patterns used in this piece:
DAFFODIL TIME is worked on my fav Santa Fe Sage Green 18 ct. canvas,
and it's finished size is a managable 8" x 8". The thread palette is built around
Watercolours 297 - " Goldenrod" which has a cheerful mix of yellows, greens,
and a dash of blue.
So, if you LOVE daffodils (and honestly, who doesn't?),
you might want to try your hand at stitching up this new Springtime piece.
(And I promise you that this is one daffodil that WON'T wilt, fall over in the rain,
or get eaten by bugs - and you'll enjoy looking at it all year long...)
