The Light Upon the Lawn is #2 in the Loose Feathers For the Birds series. The stitch count is the same as the first one in the series, It’s Spring Fever and uses the same floss colors. The recommended fabric for this one is 36ct Ale by Picture This Plus. I am stitching this one on 16ct Regency Aida by Picture This Plus.
The title of this pattern is inspired by Emily Dickenson’s poem, ‘A Light Exists in Spring’. In the poem she speaks of the light in spring being colored differently than the rest of the year. I loved the idea of spring light awaiting on the lawn … ready for us to come outside and view the landscape. You can read her poem here.
I am thinking that instead of framing these, I will have them finished three vertically into a bell pull/wall hanging. Another thought would be to have them framed as one piece, vertically. I have plenty of time to decide that once I finish stitching all nine of them.
