Sweet Appletree

The lovely Nicole Vos van Avezathe has a new pattern in the shop and much like Vogel, it's got me thinking of balmier weather:


Can't you just feel that sweet-scented, summery breeze? Don't look out the window—you'll ruin the fantasy!

Happy stitching everyone!

Very cute! Thanks for sharing.

That is absolutely precious. I wish I could learn to embroidery like that! How did you learn? I wish it was time to sit and read a book under a green, lush Apple Tree. Ah, one can dream though.

Actually I'm still learning! There's a great tutorial here if you want to give it a try: http://tashahorsley.typepad.com/photos/embroidery_tutorial/index.html

This one was done by the designer, Nicole Vos van Avezathe, (which explains its perfection - mine wouldn't be quite so neat...) but I'm thinking of giving it a try myself!

Dreaming of warmer weather right along with you!

Thank you for the sweet comments about my design :)
@SECPumpkin I learned myself how to embroider using a couple of books, some online support and resources and a lot of practice! I'm still learning actually :) It isn't hard and you can make very cute things with just a few simple stitches. Give it a try!
