Midsummer Song by Luminous Fiber Arts Printed Paper Pattern
I love birds and when I came across this rhyme about a cuckoo, I knew I had to incorporate it into a design. I think of spring and summer as an exciting time full of warmth and growing things, and I designed this sampler to match that feeling of exuberance. You’ll find spring and early summer plants, birds, and insects nestled among the motifs that adorn this piece.

Notes: There are some back and long stitches. Aida stitchers, please note that there is one stitch on the bee wing that is between stitches, and you would need to pierce your fabric or modify the wing slightly. It is the outer wing edge on the third row down (if you are counting the top of the wing as a row).
