This is my latest embroidery, I hope you enjoy seeing it. This one only took me about three weeks to finish since it's not a super large piece. I got this vintage pattern on Pinterest which can be a wonderful place to find both patterns and vintage embroideries for lots of inspiration.
Here's a copy if you would like to stitch one up yourself.
As always, I used a variety of thread brands from my ever growing collection. These flowers were made with Cosmos Seasons, Gentle Art, Needle Necessities and Sulky Blendables.
The yellow hollyhocks and the lavendar lazy daisy flowers were both made with Sulky Blendable threads. This was the first time I had used very much of this thread and it was very enjoyable to use.
I stitched these roses in a woven spider web stitch which is easy to do but just very time consuming. This thread is called "Gypsy", one of the Artiste collection that was sold by Hobby Lobby but is now unfortunately discontinued. I love the variety of pink colors all in one skein of thread. The leaves and grass were done with a Cosmos Season green that I find myself using again and again.
Thanks for taking time to look at my embroidery again, I appreciate your visit!
