Inspirations Calendar | June Project

27th May 2022

Open the Inspirations Calendar to June, and you are met with a stunning design shining out from a striking black background.

Woodland Floor by Helen M. Stevens was first published in A Passion for Needlework 3 | Blakiston Creamery. It is a beautiful project, stitched in silks so fine they could have been spun directly by the tiny spider that is just one of the highlights of this piece.

Woodland Floor is a gorgeous study of insects and flowers. The elegantly shaped plants with their rich, green leaves form a circular shape dotted with flowers. Amongst the dandelions, yellow archangel and periwinkle blooms flutter two brilliantly coloured butterflies; a purple emperor and a golden yellow painted lady. 

A bumble bee hovers over the scene, which is completed by a fine spiderweb closing the circle. At the centre of it all, a dandelion clock is captured just as the wind blows and a few seeds float free.

This project is the perfect choice as the seasons turn. When completed, this shimmering image will take pride of place in your home, capturing a moment in time for you to contemplate as the busy world moves around you.

For the very first time, Woodland Floor is now available as a digital pattern giving you the choice of enjoying the project either as downloadable PDF, or as it originally appeared in our book A Passion for Needlework 3 | Blakiston Creamery.
