A surprise and more stitches for you

Today we were beyond surprised to have these delivered to our door...

Aren't they beautiful?

And, what's better?
They actually have a marvelous scent!

Here's another in my little series of snowflakes/flower motifs for you to use in your work....


Today your quote is from Kristin Armstrong...."I love the big fresh starts, the clean slates like birthdays and new years, but I also really like the idea that we can get up every morning and start over"

I'm really enjoying these moments of stitching inspiration for seam treatments. Such lovely designs, and would also make great stitch patterns for blackwork.
The flowers are beautiful, and how nice to have them fill the room will their perfume. You also get a basket to up-cycle later on after the flowers have finished with it. I'm sure a creative person, such as yourself, can think of a few things to do with an empty basket. But for now... enjoy those beautiful flowers.
