[Edited] Lily Of The Valley

May's flower "Lily of the valley" is called "Suzuran" in Japan.
I didn't know that in France, 1st of May is the "Day of Lily of the valley" and send this flower to family, friends, etc... and is said this flower brings you happiness!

What a sweet day! That's why I saw so many Lily of the valley's images or photos, etc... on the French blogs on 1st of May...

I saw this freebie on Dany's blog (she is one of my heroine!), and couldn't resist to stitch them!
Her finishing is so pretty and beautiful as always!

* Some friends noticed me that the link to the freebie has already gone from her blog...
Brigitte told me the freebie chart is not on Dany's blog any longer but one can certainly get from her when sending her an email.


I stitched twice, one is on 40ct linen, and another one is on 30ct linen band.
Now I'm thinking how to finish them! :D

This is so beautiful design, and so my mum also fell in love with this as she saw I'm stitching...
I knew it, mum, so I prepared materials for two!

I hope finishing work will go well, I will do maybe tomorrow if I didn't go out.
From today, I will try to write "Strawberry Diary", about strawberries that we planted!
We also planted tomatos, so will probably write "Tomato Diary", too (lol)








Photos were taken 4th of May, 2009.

This hand is my son's (nearly 4 years old) hand, so you can maybe imagine how small the strawberry is.

Strawberries white lovely floweres are still blooming, so we will probably pick them a lot than we expected!


It's so fun to observe them, when floweres finished, fruits
are appear a little by little...
My son is also observating them together, and he is very expecting to pick them (but he doesn't eat fruits and veges... he is a very picky boy!)

I will try to take photos of them later and post them sometime!

How pretty. My husband and I married on May 1st 33 years ago. Lily of the Valley is my favorite flower and that was all I wanted on my wedding day. I ended up with yellow roses and a few lilies. Thanks for the link and I want to stitch them also. Very nice stitching and pictures.

Your lillies are beautifuly emboidered. I also didn't know about this link between lillies and 1st of May in France. I saw some nice patterns of lillies in many french blogs, so, I noticed that.

I will follow your "strawberry diary". hahahha! Very different, very funny. I loved the idea.
