Lily of the Valley


The sweet smell of a very tiny flower...

Beautiful embroidery idea, found in an old Marie Claire Idées.

Sabine - that is the most incredible and beautiful embroidery! I love Lily of the valley - we have a yard full of them. A dear friend is going to carry them in her wedding this weekend.

This is just a beautiful post - love the vintage pictures as well - but that embroidery - wow!

Thank you for sharing the simple lovely lily-of-the-valley pattern. I love C&E's graphics almost as much as their products. It's always such a hard decision, rose or lily-of-the-valley.

It's beautiful Sabine. Congrats on the new camera as well. You are so lucky to have your daughter to tutor you too. Makes it all so much more accessable. Your cats are the perfect subjects. Cats like to be photographed don't they, which is funny 'cos they don't like to be looked at much.
