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.

Ansley Jottings – Remember The theme for our Flower Festival this year is ‘Remember’.  Some of you will remember the first flower festival held at St Laurence Church in 1965.  Some villagers may also remember Dr Baker, who used to practice in Ansley in the 1960s, before he emigrated to Australia.  While sorting through hi...
