Colorful Blooms

''To everything
there is a season and a time
to every purpose under Heaven''

Ah, sweet memories of running barefoot through a field of sunflowers dancing in the summer breeze...

A blue sky, a sandy beach and a carefree spirit flooded in the warmth of the summer sun...

Still remember the wonderful profusion of colorful blooms?

Being a passionate lover of summer season, I found myself within these feelings that were passing thru my mind today:) Of course, each turn of the seasons rewards us with natural beauty beyond compare. I THANK MOTHER NATURE!

I wanted to bring summertime bliss to my friend Alessandra's home in Udine, Italia, by a 3''X9'' cross-stitched hanging. I found the punto de cruz (English: Cross stitch) pattern from a Spanish craft magazine Labores del Hogar, as seen above.

With love and thinking of her, I stitched it:) Like a golden ray of sunshine on a gray October day, I hope that these spring flowers will perk up the spirits and brighten her mood. Spero che ti faccia felice questo ricamo che ho fatto di cuore, Alessandra.

    Lovely cross stich. The book looks interesting.
