Inspiration from the Garden
Sometimes inspiration is all around us, even in the most mundane things. A lemon and some asparagus from garden (my garden, by the way!) don't seem like much, but you would be surprised at what a talented embroiderer can do with this subject.
Back in Inspirations No. 63, Susan O'Connor found her inspiration in just these lovely lemon and asparagus spears. The project is named Harvest, and also includes the cherries on the right hand page. Cherries won't be in season for another month yet, so I don't have photos. Besides, I don't have a cherry tree, being in Southern California by the ocean where they don't grow very well.
Maybe some day I'll try this project. after all, it calls for DMC floss, and I do have every single color.
I have three citrus trees: a lemon, a lime, and a blood orange in my courtyard, and right now the fragrance is heavenly as they are all in bloom.
Do you get inspiration from the garden?
