Continuing the cross-stitch story from the previous post . . .
Before I discovered all the roses, I had discovered other Lilac Studio designs for wonderful flowers and groups of flowers. These were all delicately shaded, artfully composed, challenging to complete, and very attractive to me.
A Bouquet with Hydrangea
One of my all-time favorite flowers, this hydrangea is one of the ones still on display in our home .
My next favorite—these freesias have a mix of both bold and muted color palettes.
Loved the blues in this design.
And, on display during December
Some of these patterns are available online on occasion, most likely on Etsy or eBay. I recommend this as a meditation exercise or a compact travel project.
I just did a search and found two more patterns that I had not seen before; am desperately trying to resist the urge to start another of these fun projects. Don’t know if my eyes can handle it anymore. Alas. . .
