Ooh, I like this one. Gotta confess I've never heard of it, though. I can picture it as lavendar blossoms too.

I hadn't heard of this one either—found it in a UK embroidery book. You're right—it does look like lavender. Especially if you keep the side parts shorter and closer in so the whole thing is more compact. I'll have to try it in purple and see!

Help ! I'm almost out of ink and paper on my copier, from copying all the stitches I like.

Have you thought about doing a book?

Love your site!

Dear Janet, Its so commendable that you take such interest in sharing your gifts. I call it a gift because you have a talent that is unique adn well used. I just discovered your tutorials adn I couldn't thank you enough. It reinforces my belief that there is much good on the internet as there is the converse. More power to your needle. I can't wait to revitalise my embroidery hobby.
