Meet Resourceful Rosie (she figured out how to use a button to streamline stitching), Perfect Patty (no WIP's or UFO's...just awards), Showoff Sue (happy to tell you how to do everything), Frantic Freida (so many things to do, so many places to go, so little accomplished) and Klueless Kate (no idea how to do anything). They're at the framer right now.

This morning I finished stitching the gold gingko leaves in the last major stitching area of Patterns of the Orient.
I still have to apply the Grecian twist, wire bullion, purl perl and tidy up a few things, but the worst/best is over.

It's done in a Watercolours of greens and pinks, pink Ribbon Floss Shimmer, a pink Metallic Ribbon Floss, several Perle Cottons and pearl beads. I love these floral collage designs from Laura J. Perin because they have small areas with fun stitches, just enough sparkle to make them pretty, and an easy to do background.
The lily of the valley is the flower for May and has many traditions associated with it. According to Wikipedia, in the "language of flowers", the lily of the valley signifies the return of happiness. Legend tells of the affection of a lily of the valley for a nightingale that did not come back to the woods until the flower bloomed in May.
