- Special Order
Lilacs have always been one of my favorite flowers of Spring. When I was young, my mother used to bring in huge bouquets from our own lilac bush in the back yard, and their fragrance would greet me at the door when I came home from school. In the sampler, you'll see touches of sparkling beads and teal blue overdyed waterlilies silks as well as perle cotton in teal green shades. Other fibers include a soft mauve pink perle cotton, and white Trebizond twisted silk for contrast. Stitches include bargello, simple hardanger, pulled thread, foursided edging stitch, hemstitches and silk ribbon embroidery. The sampler looks just lovely when framed, or you can finish it as a needleroll to match the chatelaine. The little scissors fob and ornaments are taken from various parts of the sampler, and instructions are given for these small items at the end of the leaflet. --Thea
