Fresh Blooms Project Idea: Love the Spring (Shakespeare's Peddler)

I thought we'd start our Fresh Blooms project series with a timely celebration of spring - check out our version of Love the Spring by Shakespeare's Peddler:

This sampler makes use of most of the threads included in the Fresh Blooms box: Aunt Marie's Violet (Classic Colorworks), Buttercup (WDW), Carnation (Petite Mulberry Collection - Dragonflylotus Designs), Colorwash 558 and DMC 3053. Stitched on 40 count Bashful linen from Picture This Plus, we used one strand of thread throughout, with the exception of the Colorwash, which needed 2 strands for adequate coverage.

Love the Spring is an older chart from Shakespeare's Peddler, but is still listed on several online needlework shops including Silver Needle. With a stitch count of 97x169, this chart would not fit on Fat 16ths from the Big Picture box, but would be a great choice for those who selected a Fat 8th, or for Detail Oriented Box subscribers. 

Check back next week when we give you a quick project idea for the bamboo hexagon frame!
