Celtic Spring

by Lana

This is Celtic Spring by Lavender and Lace. This company has many lovely patterns with flowing dresses and pretty scenes and fine needlework.
I completed this whilst we were in the US. It is part of a series including Summer, Spring, Autumn, Winter and Christmas. If you look closely you will see that the face and hands are done "one over one" - which means that it is one thread over one thread of the material. Normally crosses are two over two. This gives the completed picture finer hands and faces.

I'll have more to post as I am packing them away ready for the big trip. Once we are home we will frame quite a few and I'll take another photo - without the creases!
