This how my working place looks right now. Lilies of the Valley are in bloom in my small garden and I remembered that a few years ago I had already cross stitched a card with these flowers.
Started the next bunting, this time from white daffodils. It seems I am crazy about this flowers :)))
Finally, my daffodil garland is ready. The season for these flowers is already ending, although they are still blooming in my small garden. It was my yellow daffodils with a dark yellow centre that was my inspiration for making this garland. I love these flowers for their fragility, delicacy, smell and for the fact that they are a symbol of spring, just like tulips, of course. But crochet tulips and connecting them into a garland is quite difficult, although I can’t stop thinking about it and quite possibly I’ll figure out how to do it better. But while I’m working the details out, the daffodils are taking over.
And this is how the garland looks hanging on the wall.
Well, it is Sunday and there is +17°C and sunny outside. The weather forecast did not disappoint this time. I had to cut down my biggest tulips because of the windy weather some days ago, so take a look, how beautiful they are. I hope my shop designer will create a cross stitch pattern for them.
Some years ago I worked as a teacher at the after-school centre, where there were different classes for children from the area. The classes were very different: teaching foreign languages, drawing, sculpting, ceramics, and similar plastic classes. There was one teacher at the centre who was particularly beloved by the children for her patience, desire to see talent in each child and ability to develop that talent. She painted gorgeous pictures and I received tulips as a gift from her similar to the ones that grew and bloomed this year in my small garden. That’s how this lovely picture turned out.
