Stained Glass Spring

NEW THIS WEEK - March 9th, 2011
 

Spring Fling with Stained Glass!
 

For more than a thousand years, artists have been experimenting with color, shape, and light to produce magnificent works of stained glass. These works of art add vibrant hues and a classic look to any church or home.

This week we are pleased to present an exciting array of designs that are inspired by traditional stained glass. Begin with a 9-piece window scene that's bursting with colorful blooms and spring fever. Embroider, then arrange together to make a magnificent wall hanging.

Stained glass squares, medallions, borders, and corners are always in season when stitched onto tote bags, pillow shams, table linens, bath towels, skirts, shirts, and more. Colors bloom from all garments and home decor items with these new designs.



Stained Glass Spring Scene

Bring a breath of spring air and blooms of bright color to your embroidery machine. Stitch these 9 spring-themed squares, then arrange them together to make a beautiful stained glass window scene.

Buzzing dragonflies and flirty butterflies bring energy to this scene, while a placid frog, turtle, and snail pose in colorful early-blooming flowers. And, a bright sun shines down its warm, spring rays. Bring this beautiful spring scene to your home, and create something that will warm the hearts and souls of all, no matter the weather!
 


Stained Glass Spring Scene Design Packs
 

The nine designs used in the above project are sold in a design pack. The pack is available in four sizes, and is priced at $17.97. Click on the link or image to the size that is appropriate for your machine and your project, and add the pack to your basket.

Spring Fling with Stained Glass!
 
Drawing (literally) from the above scene, we've made squares, medallions, borders, and corners with the bright flowers and charming critters. Use these designs in coordination with the above project, or on their own! Add classic and colorful squares and medallions to tote bags, pillow shams, towels, and table linens. Stitch the borders onto the edges of tablecloths, skirts, and shirts. Tuck the corner onto wash cloths, linen napkins, and pockets of shirts and sweaters. However you choose to use the designs, let your creativity shine!
 


Stained Glass Butterflies
 


When a butterfly shows its colorful wings, you know spring has arrived. These designs feature butterflies in all their warm-weather glory, fluttering through the air. Stitch onto table linens, tote bags, wall hangings, and anywhere you'd like to add a splash of spring color!

Stained Glass Daffodils


These Daffadown Dillies trumpet the arrival of spring. They're the stars of Wordsworth's poem, "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud":
 

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Stained Glass Tulips


Tulips originally came from Turkey -- the word "tulip" actually evolved from the Persian word "dulband," which means "turban." But in the 1600s, tulipomania swept through The Netherlands, and the Dutch were frantic with desire for these flowers. Since that time tulips have been associated with The Netherlands. Seeing the tulip farms in the springtime is a wonderful event.

Stained Glass Pansies


The name "pansy" comes from the French word pensee, which means "thought." In late summer the petals become heavy on the flower's stem, and the flower head nods back and forth as though deep "in thought." Other names that this lovely flower has had include  Stepmother, Little Flame, Humble Violet, and Jump Up and Kiss Me.

Stained Glass Crocuses


Crocuses are one of the first flowers to appear in late winter or early spring. They have a waxy layer of protection on their leaves and petals, and this prevents them from suffering or being damaged by frost. And, here's an interesting tidbit: a company that performs well after an economic downturn is called a "crocus," likening the company's survival to the flower's ability to survive (and even thrive) in the cooler temps of late winter.
