I took a "gentle" walk today and snapped some photos of the beautiful spring blossoms. I missed the magnolias because I was hospitalized, and then it rained for days. They have finished blooming and are in full leaf.
Below is another of the spring-themed biscornus from The Floss Box. This is the back. I'm stitching it on white Monaco. This is to be part of a 3-piece needlework gift set: biscornu, fob, and scissors case.
The next picture is from the April 1989 Just Cross Stitch magazine. I have looked at this gorgeous butterfly for years and never gotten around to stitching it. Well, no more procrastinating for me! I only have one color of Balger blending filament (it calls for two), and so I will look for the required colors at Michaels or Craft2000. I'm stitching it on Aida because this will be framed for a friend. I'll stitch another (on linen) for myself.
And, last but not least, I've begun my Dimensions "Beautiful Bird."
Have a good day!
