While the weather may not know it, it is Spring!

And here is the first of my Four Seasons - Spring.
It is only small, 23 cm square, which means the beading has to be kept relatively simple.
The fabric behind the silk is a sort of minty/limey green. Nice and bright to convey the freshness of spring.

I embroidered the twigs on the tree, attaching the leaves as I went.
I used the thread double to make it stand out and two different coloured green beads.

I then used one of the colours from the tree and yellow beads to make primroses.
I finished Winter last night but that needs mounting before I take any pictures.
I can do that this afdternoon while waiting for the Tesco delivery!
