Wishing Spring might come soon
I awoke to snow this morning. Flurries intermittently appeared during the afternoon. Now, at 8 p.m., it's started to snow again. Enough already--this winter stuff is getting old!
At least on the Cape, winter is still in full throttle. But I'm dreaming of days ahead, when my little crocuses start popping their heads through the still-soggy ground, hoping an itinerant chipmunk doesn't need a snack.
So, if you were wondering where I get the inspiration for some of my designs, now you know! This crocus was stitched in long stitches with DMC #5 perle cotton, with a background of DMC floss and Kreinik #12 tapestry braid.
