What we have all been waiting for - the start of our floral sampler. Each month we will be stitching another flower and one large butterfly, along with smaller insects that make up this pretty sampler. We make a start with the aquilegia or Columbine for this month of January. Only whole stitches are used for all of the motifs, with just a few backstitches and French knots for detail - mainly for the buttterflies. Many of you have made a start on the simple, but pretty border, so will be ready to go!
I am already looking forward to seeing lots of pctures from you as we go along.

Happy stitching, Lesley
