Project

Red Lupins

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I have never been great at completing things - too many new ideas. So, I was thrilled to get this done and framed. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Because of the number of pea flowers on a lupin, the only backstitching is around parts of the leaves, so it is quicker to complete than you expect.

What you will need

  • Aida cloth and DMC floss.
