From Blue Flower Stitching, the
inspiration for this design comes from the many
natural fibers we're privileged to use for our
stitching. The animals around the corners
(llama, alpaca, angora rabbit, sheep and
cashmere goat) all produce magnificent fibers.
At the top of the design there is a silk moth.
(The mulberry branches are populated by
silkworms and their cocoons.) At the bottom of
the design there are cotton flowers and bolls.
Flax flowers twine up the sides of the design,
and the outer border is inspired by twisted
strands of thread! Shown stitched on 40ct
Brown Sugar linen from Fiber on a Whim with a
