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

May's Bird Nest Hand Embroidery Pattern

My new hand embroidery pattern is my most adventurous project yet.  Usually I like simple outline embroidery and in this pattern I have more areas filled in and used floss blends to get even more color ranges. The pattern is designed to be as detailed as you want. The twigs can be filled in more, more French knots for the plants, and more satin stitches on the leaves.  It's a fun pattern to experiment with adding other stitches as well.  Click here for more details.  The painting I used as inspiration for the pattern.
