"Summer in Bloom"
by Blackbird Designs
from their book, Maria Selby Humphrey - 1831
I love the soft, aged, muted colors on this piece.
The little butterfly just makes me smile :)
I edged it with a R&R hand dyed rickrack.
Designed as a pinkeep drum, I just stitched my favorite motif and created a pillow instead filled with natural cotton batting.
"And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more
in knowledge and depth of insight..."
