Just a little something for spring.

I'm not really one to stitch small projects, but here's one I just put together for a gift. I love the way the overdyed silk works on this "Waterlily" linen. And the tassels and twisted cord in complementary DMC colors just add the right touch.

And I found this perfect print as soon as I walked into the quilting room at Angelwing NeedleArts (my LNS).
