Would you like to join me in a new stitch-along? This is the project I have in mind, a vase full of flowers to cheer up a gloomy winter’s day. I’ll give you step-by-step directions beginning today. Soon you’ll be relaxing with fabric and thread and creating a colorful vase with most unusual flowers.
This version of Flower Vase is embroidered on wool but you can use any fabric you like as a canvas. Directions will be added to the Flower Vase Stitch Along page as we go.
