Spring Bouquet

Today I started a small embroidery project on a handkerchief. The design is a bouquet of spring flowers. I took the design from one of the Ondori books "A New Look for Needlework." It's a lovely design. I have almost finished it.

Here are some photos of the project.

I will post the remaining photos tomorrow.

What an Ondori book? I searched your blog on "Ondori" but didn't come up with any other references.

Thankyou for the lovely comment you left after mine.

Ondori, also known as Ondorisha, is the name of a Japanese publisher. They have published several embroidery and craft books in '70s and '80s. If you search Amazon for Ondori, you will see a list of their books.

I own three Ondori books. They have excellent patterns with color photos of the finished projects. I love to read these books just for the sake of looking at the photos.

You will find several gorgeous long-and-short embroidery projects (with clear instructions) in these books.

I will soon write reviews of these books in my blog.
