But this year I am getting back to the things I enjoy, to simple things that make me happy and help me live in the moment. I had an idea for a small embroidery of wildflowers arranged in a ring but all the tiny flowers and colours were getting a bit muddled up in my head. I had to have a visual guide in front of me so I made this sketch. It's very simple but looks quite nice. A combination of forget-me-nots, wild violets, buttercups and some other amazingly beautiful wildflowers.
The embroidery floss is ready, the hoop is waiting, so is my favourite needle. I am off to start working on this design. Hope I have enough patience for these teensy-weensy flowers and they look as good on fabric as on paper.
