This is just a simple little design I drew and stitched in split stitch and backstitch. I was inspired by a little cross stitch booklet by dmc that had a similar dandelion seed or hydrangea stem design (I'm not sure exactly what they are  Undecided ). I meant for it to be simplistic so I used all white and I love the way it looks in the weathered frame that I found at a consignment shop for a couple of bucks. Anyway, I hope you like it, I always love comments, and thanks for looking  Wink



Sorry it's a little blurry. It looks better in real life!

It's very pretty.  I love its simplicity.  It actually reminds me a lot of this little coral-esque plant I saw at a tidepool.

I read your manifestos and strange religious tracts.  You took me to your library and kissed me in the stacks.

So pretty! I'm usually not a fan of white, but now all I want to do is embroider a dandelion and frame it Wink

Wow, these are the nicest compliments I think I've ever received! I feel  a little misty-eyed... in a good way! Thanks so much.  Cheesy I'd offer a tutorial of some sort but it's pretty self-explanatory I think. Thanks again
