It has warmed up so much that it feels like spring!
That put me in the mood to use some flowery fabric to make a box .... when I was done it reminded me of a tulip. The fabric I used is 'Scrumptious' by Moda and lives up to it's name.
You'll find a fabulous tutorial here.
The Man of the House is painting the wall along the stairs to the basement and we need something to break up the expanse of the wall so we looked through our pictures and decided these two would be just right. Unfortunately, the stitching needed to be removed from the frames, pressed well, and framed again. The lily was stitched in 1990 and the rose in 1991 ... they're almost vintage. The designs were featured in a magazine such as Cross Quick. The aida cloth that I used is such a nice soft fabric that I can't seem to buy today.
