Traditionally, lily of the valley is sold everywhere on streets in France on the first of May and is one of the symbols of springtime and of good luck.
I haven't stitched any lily of the valley designs (yet) but I fancied a quick and easy project yesterday so I made this small card needle holder and I'm pleased with the result.
|Card Needle holder - closed|
Heirloom Wedding Sampler free pattern
- Victoria Sampler
Stitched on 28ct Cashel, colour unknown with DMC 842
|Card Needle holder - open|
I used this free design from The Victoria Sampler as the 23H x 23W stitch design was the perfect size.
This idea is not mine. I received one of these as a Christmas exchange gift in 2013 and have copied the idea.
