and embroider it with the different images that I feel best expresses what I love in life and in embroidery.
It all starts with a thimble......with the initials for Yesteryear Embroideries
then the needle and floss.......as you see is attached to the Zinnia, as if it is still in the process of being embroidered.
Every year I grow different sized gardens of Zinnia along the grounds........
I have always turned to nature for inspiration in my embroidery design.......whether it be the zinnia, and buzzing bees. It has been a long time since I have seen a bumble bee. When I mention this to others, they tell me it is because they have been destroyed by chemicals and pesticides that are used in the fields nearby.
The wild thistle growing on the prairie has always held a special place in my heart. I love clusters of small blue butterflies that always seem to flutter about in the gardens.
I also love buttons and beads. Beaded flowers are one of my favorite things to embroider,
as well as clusters of blackberries......
along with spiders and their webs.............
just for fun, I made a beaded worm, who seems to have been nibbling on the leaf above...........
All in all, a "logo" stitched to represent some of the things I love most.
How about you?
If you created your own logo......or header.........what would it show?
Roses or daisies?.........maybe a hummingbird or butterfly?
I would love to hear!
