From Gingerbread Girl Designs' website:
"I love to combine different forms of needlework to make something new. Blackwork and Hardanger embroidery seemed like natural friends to me. This design is easily adaptable to any décor, since it uses one color of silk thread and one shade of metallic for the blackwork embroidery. There is a mate to this design called Spring Shimmer. This design was previously published in A Needle Pulling Thread magazine."
