Crocus Flowers Hand Embroidery Pattern

I decided to jump to early spring for this design and embroider a row of crocus flowers on a kitchen towel. I liked the yellow and green stripes on the towel and went with a yellow theme.  It's titled  Hello Spring .  Did you know some people like to give crocus flowers on Valentine's Day rather than roses? There is a legend of St. Valentine, a physician, who was imprisoned and sentenced to death in Rome.  One of his patients was the jailer's blind daughter.  On the day of his execution he gave the jailer a note with a saffron crocus flower in it to give to his daughter. Upon opening the note she saw a flower for the first time, her eyesight was restored. This occurred on February 14.  Find Hello Spring embroidery pattern   here
