I’m a wee bit behind on showing off my commissions, so here’s an update.
I really enjoyed this one, although it was meant to be ‘just a simple design’ it turned into quite a lot of stitching!
I do love a cherry blossom, Edinburgh is particularly blessed with rows and rows of trees (including one poor confused tree in the Meadows which always flowers on its own and at very strange times of the year).
Blossom trees always remind me of both Japanese and French Impressionist art, so I thought they would give a suitably Parisian flavour.
It’s not until I went to look for an image for this post that I realised how much I must have been holding that Van Gogh in my mind. There you are, another reason to expose small children to works of art.
