A Bouquet of Flowers

10 Nov 20

Clare's Story

During our 2019 festival illness struck and since my diagnosis I have received so many beautiful flowers which have certainly brought a smile to my face and lifted my spirits. For the 2020 festival I asked my cross stitch friends  ...... I'm hoping you will help. For my church tree this year I would like to do a floral tree - A Bouquet of Flowers. 

Would you stitch a flower and send it to me, I will finish them, thank you.

I was amazed at everyone's enthusiasm to help and as Covid started to affect everyone the Bouquet seemed even more important. 

I stitched quite a few, but was set back when I broke my arm in May. Thankfully it was only a month or so before I was able to stitch again, a good job because I received over 25 flowers from all over the world, all needing finishing. 

I decided to use silver zig zag ribbon and match each flower with backing foam. I set up our tree and used the hardanger angel from last year's White Tree ... I am delighted with my “Bouquet of Flowers”, I was quite touched by the finished effect, there are nearly 40 flowers.  

I have packed them safely away for my 2021 tree, hopefully in church, I'm sure I'll be adding some more by then.
