This pattern, it’s quite simple. I tend to use a lot of colours in my patterns, cram in lots of stitches. But not here. Not a lot going on, only a few colours, too. I like it. Sometimes I have to remind myself that it’s ok to make something simple. Something that is just a pleasure to stitch. Almost meditative.
The pattern feels sweet and romantic. Because it is. It is inspired by summer evening walks, picking flowers while the sun sets and putting them in your hair. Using different colours and adding names and dates, it would be a lovely embroidery for a romantic gift or for a birthday.
Because it’s so simple, it’s a great pattern for beginner stitchers, you only need to know a few stitches – or learn them as you go – to make a pretty stitchery. That is one of the beautiful things about embroidery, you can make something beautiful even as a beginner. 🙂
