Inspired by a dress I wore to a prom a few decades ago, lol. The essence of feminity, the dress was covered from just under the bust to flounces at the floor in beautiful scallops of a floral lace and since I began designing patterns for needlework it has been something I wanted to translate into cross stitch.
Just Cross Stitch made the model into a pillow and as always, I'm grateful to the editor, Christy Schmitz and her staff, for presenting their designer's work in such a beautiful fashion.
I hope you'll pick up a copy of the magazine which will be on sale through June.

Like the hare, everything seems to be coming out of its winter colors and it won't be long before the apple and pear trees are covered with blossoms and humming with bees.
I need to shake myself out like the new spring covers on the bed and get some tomato seeds started inside if we're going to have some getting to any size in the garden beds before fall comes back. I hope you're enjoying the new season wherever you are!
