July Cross Stitch and Purple Flower Bouquet Card
It's the season for cutting flowers from the garden and making bouquets. Kind of nice not to have to buy bouquets that other people make, I like to make my own. This is a watercolor of a larkspur bouquet I painted. I also like to collect vases, pitchers and such to put flowers in. Today I cut some deep red dianthus and put it into a canning jar which I thought suited the humble little bouquet.
It's almost July so I thought I would put a little design for July on. I like the little red watering cans around the border. This is one in a set of twelve designs that are fun to stitch. I used Gentle Art Sampler flosses on all of them, they have great colors in their floss collection.
