Floral Sampler

21st Dec 2012

This flower sampler, in the latest edition of Cross Stitch Collection, will be a lovely, colourful picture to stitch and admire as a framed piece. The design however, can also have a dual purpose as each flower with its month will make ideal motifs for greetings cards throughout the year.

The small picture of the snowdrop shows you how one of the motifs could look when stitched separately. I have added a single row of cross stitches to form a border around the flower. This will be ideal for a small card for that January birthday. Or add your own words to any of the flowers for a special person.

A year in bloom at the Making Spot.
