Spring Goddess

On a day like today, when the temperature doesn’t move much above zero all day in Vermont, my daydreams turn to Spring and the flowers that will miraculously emerge from the ground when the chill of winter has passed. This fresh and lovely Spring Goddess is the perfect harbinger of those days filled with green grass and fragrant blossoms. She will be in issue  220 of Cross Stitch Collection. What a delight it was to add one more Goddess to the collection and reflect on the beautiful flowers of this  favorite season. Lots of Mill Hill beads and sparkling Kreinik metallic threads add a touch of luxury to the design. She is stitched on pale blue linen  and how lovely she would look on one of Polstitches beautiful hand dyed fabrics too. I would choose ‘awakening’ from Jo’s beautiful selection. I have listed the supplies on the Floss and Embellishments page so you can start to gather things for when she arrives.
