We can only hope that with Easter Spring will come.....quickly.
While here in Austin we have been blessed with beautiful Bluebonnets and wildflowers, many of our customers are still battling snow.
I have made reference to the book "Wonderful Stitches" bu Diane Schultz before and I am doing it again. I thought I would share a stitch out of her book that I am calling Bargello Flowers 2.
Use a stranded silk for the framing (black), Neon Rays for the red stitches and an over-dyed thread for the blue stitches. I like Painters Palette Shimmer Ribbon. It gives a wonderful effect with the shimmer and the over-dye at the same time.
