Gild the Lily

Complete Embroidery Kit

More is more. When you take something that is already beautiful and add more to it, it’s called “gilding the lily” or “painting the lily”, as per Shakespeare. When I first stitched this pattern, I started with just lime green and black, but then I wondered how it would look in my classic emerald green. Those two options went out into the world for my wonderful customers to decide, but it was a split decision! And there were many calls for “both”. So I stitched it AGAIN with both colours, and even added a little red, and voila! A pattern that breaks all the rules. You can simplify and use all one colour, or go for it and add all three for your own personal design. This one’s fancy 😉

Your friends and family will undoubtedly be very impressed by your finished creation. Be prepared for adulation – and possibly a little envy too. (You deserve it!)
