A simple, beautifully hand knit, classic oatmeal wool sweater was the starting point. Each day saw the slow and steady addition of a red poppy waving in the breeze, with a meadow of little forget-me-nots at her feet.
A dandelion lets go of some of her seeds, to float and fall as they will...
Slowly, gently a wildflower garden begins to take shape. A friendly bumble bee takes flight from coloured flowers and a few daisies.
Certain projects become close to your heart, representing the lovely time you spent creating them. My little girl at my side helping to choose the colours and happily playing with the yarn made for such a lovely experience and a garment imbued with love.
This has been a wonderfully fulfilling and joy inducing project. I think I will carve some time to work on more unscheduled "makings" like this amongst my orders in the latter half of this year.
Perhaps you may find a few more ready-to-ship items in my little shop because of it - and when you see them there you will know they have been embroidered slowly and with copious amounts of love.
.... Most likely accompanied with a nice cup of tea and a home baked cookie too :)
I don't have anyone in my life to fit this sweater right now, so if you are interested in investing in my beautiful hand knit and embroidered woolen sweater before I list it in my shop, please email me at the firstname.lastname@example.org. $58. Thanks! x
