The Advent of Spring


Once again, I have returned to one of my (nicely tucked away) passions - embroidery. I am sure that those who are with me longer remember the organic jewelry series I had here on my blog more than a year ago. Well, I had made a stash of embroidered corks, patiently waiting for a project and the time came for me to reveal them. As a matter of fact I have prepared a tutorial for it, but it will have to wait for a while.


This one is called "The Advent of Spring" and it reflects the departing heavy winter and the advent of the life infusing spring. Accordingly, the colors range from deep to light(er) gray and coral pink. It is pleasure for the eyes. Stay tuned.
