Let me introduce you to ‘Say It With Flowers’, a four-part monthly mystery with a floral theme. I have kept this design small, it finishes at just 25” x 25” making it affordable for everyone and with its compact size it will be easy for participants to enjoy the sewing each month and have the completed project ready to enjoy before the end of the year.
Who can resist a garden full of flowers or for that matter a gorgeous bunch of flowers in the home, not me. Once a month we go to our local farmers market and one of the ‘top priority’ items on my list is flowers. I enjoy using various jugs, mugs and other containers to display my flowers in which is where the inspiration for this design came from.
Simple piecing, appliqué, Suffolk Puffs (yoyo) flowers made using a variety of my own design cotton prints, I have used Corner of The Woods and Neutrals by Lynette for the backgrounds. There is a sprinkling of hand dyed wools alongside my signature style embroidery, I had fun adding some of my delightful painted buttons to complete the look.
