This design started when I was looking through my precious Victoria Magazine spring issues. The photographs of the flowers are always beautiful, and always very inspiring. When I'm in the mood to draw some flowers, that is where I often turn.

I did a little doodling in my sketchbook and the idea of a different perspective for a sampler sprang out of my sketches.

I also think the little row of berry baskets at the bottom would make a great pincushion or small all by themselves!
