Coming in Issue 191 of Cross Stitch Collection, a beautiful Summer Goddess inspired by the flowers growing in my Vermont garden. What a joy to be able to once again combine my two most loved activities, designing and gardening. I love the riot of color in the summer garden. Black-eyed-susans, cosmos, pincushion flowers and lilies abound to bring a fresh and vibrant lift to the design. Stitched on 28HPI Zweigart Brittney evenweave (off white, ref 3270/101) and embellished with glistening Mill Hill beads and pretty Kreinik metallic threads, I hope you will all find her joy to stitch. I will post some variations on Polstitches hand dyed fabric tomorrow. So many wonderful choices! Supply list will be up later today.
