The Gentle Rain
With this design I wanted to capture the wonderful feeling of soft spring rain. Living in the desert I particularly miss the rain, but I've always loved clouds and fog and drizzle. So here I have some spring flowers and trees, along with a variety of wildlife. The central feature is an enormous birdbath where ducks and ducklings, a swan and some cygnets are enjoying a splash. The model is stitched on 40 count "Bittersweet" linen from Lakeside Linens. Stitch count is 205 wide x 162 high. The chart calls for a both DMC and overdyed threads (and includes a full conversion to DMC).
