The Flowers In My Window

I have had a long time fascination with sampler motifs, and have been collecting examples for just as long.  This last weekend I started stitching the model for The Flowers In My Window. I am using motifs that are inspired by traditional motifs and my free form mandala stitching.

The Flowers In My Window- carolynmanningdesigns (c)2015

There are 25 different flowers stitched inside the window panes. Each square is 2" x 2". I find I really like working in smaller scales. This might have been a design that would lend itself well to petit pointe.

I think I might do something similar with snowflakes at some point, maybe with a whole bunch of sparkly Kreinik threads.

Off to stitch! I have a Tuesday Twinchie to get ready!
