Spring blossoms are so fleeting each year and right now the blooms are long gone.
A few of us signed up for a knitted postcard swap on the Amiras Group and this is the postcard I created for my partner. I knit the background using different bits of yarn I had leftover from other projects and then embroidered the cherry blossoms and other flowers with french knots using embroidery floss.
I had to rely on YouTube to refresh my memory since I haven’t really embroidered anything since my Home Ec class in school! It isn’t pictured here, I mounted the finished “postcard” onto card stock so that I could write a message to my partner.
It was a fun project trying to think out of the (knitting) box and my partner says she likes it 🙂 Score!!
