Sunflower Bouquet

Click here for larger image.

Summertime signals the impending bloom of sunflowers. I always look forward to rural drives through the countryside and seeing fields of towering, vibrant sunflowers. This project will bring those vivid blooms in your home year-round. Stitch the project as shown or stitch just the sunflower for a simple, stunning wonder. And who knows, maybe the sunflower will remind you of a special summer vacation.

Designed by Tom & Felicia Williams
