In addition to 95+ degree temps here we have also had 70%+ humidity (not normal for our area) and so I have been doing anything and everything to get my mind off the heat. I picked up this pattern from Kathy Schmitz a few months ago because I was intrigued by the embroidery work. I haven't done any hand embroidery since I was a teenager.
I decided right away I wasn't a fan of the black and cream. In my mind when I think of winter, blue comes to mind. So this was my interpretation of the pattern.
Now if it would only do the trick and bring us some cooler weather!
