Vivid Violets

September 16, 2010



I was lucky enough to have received a box of my late Grandmothers embroidery thread a little while ago. My Gran loved bright colours and there was a lot of different purples in there! Perfect for stitching violets...

These violets I found growing along my mother's path are so little and yet so lovely with their delicate details and vivid colour. I decided to try and capture their magic in my embroidery today.

I loved using Grans' thread, I somehow think she would be very pleased to see it used for violets! I decided to make this violet embroidery into a sweet little zippered purse. It is available in my Big Little Shop.
