Pretty Pansies

Continuing on the floral/pansy theme from my last post here are some pics of a finished project from a couple of years ago. This was so enjoyable to stitch, the colours were vibrant and it really seemed to grow so fast. It hangs in my hallway and always recieves lots of nice comments from visitors. Pansies are a bit of an obsession of mine, when it comes to fabric, teacups and china, stitching - anything really! I have stitched a few other pansy projects over the years and plan to do Shepherds Bush Pansy Needle Roll this year.

Pansies, Violas & Violets

Stitched on Ivory Belfast 32ct Linen with DMC thread

I would like to thank everyone who has stopped by and visited my blog, your visits and comments are very encouraging. The whole experience of blogging has been a positive one for me, and visiting your blogs, and seeing the gorgeous stitching everyone else does is so inspiring.

Thanks again - till next time, Nicky

Oh, those pansies are gorgeous! What fabulous colors! I too love pansies. I think it is because when I see them I KNOW that warm weather is here to stay! Thanks for sharing and I look forward to the Shepards Bush Pansy Needleroll!

Hi The pansies are very pretty and I like how they are framed.I have purple pansies in pots on my front porch and some planted in the yard. The tulips will come up through them soon...then spring will be here. Happy Stitching!!! Jan
