March's Daffodil & April's Too

It's done and it's a beauty!

Design - "March's Daffodil"
Designer - Cottage Garden Samplings
Fabric - 32 count French Lace linen 
Fibers - DMC, GAST, & WDW - 2 strands over 2 threads
Started - 26 March 2013
Completed 15 April 2013

A really nice stitch - the colors are very true to those pictured on the chart.  I had a bit of frogging with the 'forest' of stems and leaves, other than that, this was smooth sailing.

 I thought I'd continue the theme of daffodils, as I still have lots blooming in mid-April.  

My Narcissus 'Jack Snipe' are at their peak right now.

I usually steer away from orange in the garden, but I do like this Narcissus variety - 'Altruist'.

My Mom bought me this lovely blue pot last year.
I planted Narcissus 'Sweet Pomponette' and Muscari latifolium.
I think it makes for a lovely companion planting.


  1. Lovely ~ both your stitching and your flowers!

  2. I found this blog via Angela. Each month is so lovely, I really like the sentiments and the different flowers.
    I also like the collage you've put together for each month too.

  3. This looks great, can't wait to stitch this one... eventually! And the daffodils, just love them.
