Spring and Summer Flowers

look at the next design

The fresh colours of the English countryside are captured in these original Beth Russell canvaswork designs, inspired by the botanical drawings so popular in the latter part of the 19th century.

(Please note: Summer Flowers are sadly currently unavailable as a kit, but do appear as a chart in Beth's book Arts & Crafts Needlepoint)

Sring and Summer flowers made up as needlepoint cushions

The designs incorporate poppies, daffodils, iris, tulips and cornflowers, all the flowers that make the coming of spring and summer such a joy.

Tent stitch is used for the central part of the design and, if desired, texture can be added with cashmere stitch for the outer background area to create an interesting contrast.
