One GINORMOUS dandelion. Look at the Queen Anne’s Lace in the background. That’s a seriously tall, and large, dandelion. I love it.
Here’s a close-up of the Queen Anne’s Lace. So pretty! These photos were taken at Big Meadows, Shenandoah National Park, VA, where we spent two nights during our trip. I would have linked to the official park page, but as I type, it’s not working.
Why do I share a dandelion picture, you ask? I mean, besides liking the picture, of course. Because I love how it relates to my recent (yesterday) finish, Dandelion Clock! OMG, so cuuuuuuuttttte! I adore him. He will live in my son’s room.
Dandelion Clock by Margaret Sherry
stitched on 28-ct. Summer Sky Jobelan using DMC threads
Changes: I shortened the tail and stitched it in DMC 762 and white to make it a hamster instead of a mouse, and instead of stitching the dandelion seeds in DMC 535, I used 640 and Wisper thread. I only had the gray and some white Wisper thread, so I used gray. White wouldn’t have shown on the fabric. If I’d gone to the LNS for another color, I would have spent a bunch of money, so I made do. 🙂
