And Then There Were Two

Violet and Primrose finished
Just a quick post to show you the finished violet and primrose pictures. I wanted the violets finished by the end of April, and the last stitch went in yesterday, so I actually made my deadline!

Here’s a close-up of the violet:

Violet in Silk, 5 - complete mini
I’d like to do a third spring flower, but which one to choose? I’m thinking I might do a daisy – they are so glorious at this time of year and the size is about right. What do you think?

  1. Lovely! I like daisies no matter what the time of year.

  2. Daisies should certainly fit into the same sort of style, and they would balance the primroses nicely.

    Do you know those daisies that have a red or purple underside and it just reaches up to tinge the outside of the top of the petals? That would bring the pale colours and the dark colours of the first 2 pieces together beautifully….. ???

    Yes, I was thinking of some of the daisies showing their red underwear. I’ll make some drawings of them and see what I can come up with.

      Red/pinks to tone with the blues/purples of the violets, and then cream of the petals to work with the shades of cream in the primroses…..lovely!

  5. These are great! I really love the violet’s leavs.

    What says spring more than a dandelion! Flower and seedhead both. Dandelion greens for those who eat them., too. They really are lovely, despite being weeds. There is also the wonderful color of trees as they begin to leaf out with their spring greens, though the scale might not work for your vision here.
