welcome to February ~
my favorite month!
yes, I know it's short, and cold...wet and sometimes gloomy.
it is a transitional month that is leaning into Spring,
with one foot yet behind in Winter...
first sightings of crocus and snowdrops are entertaining my thoughts ~ while I wait & watch the birds to predict the always-changing February weather.
I'll take advantage of this month of love and the lengthening days to plan my garden, and begin the ritual of Spring Cleaning.
February is also my birth month, so that itself holds dear to me
I am enjoying some free-style embroidery,
and challenging myself more & more with specialty stitches,
while combining my love of primitive & folk art design
with a softer palette for the Spring months ahead ~
needle-weaving has become stuck in my brain,
as you can see in the folk heart below...
I've worked it in Valdani pearl cotton, DMC floss and Gentle Art Sampler Threads.
Stitches are a combination of spider web, satin, french knot, bullion, stem stitch, straight stitch and dimensional picot for the leaves.
The heart above is available on today's
SOLD thanks so much
Have a wonder-FULL day my sweet friends!
Blessings from the Farm ~
