Midsummer Sun | Luminous Fiber Arts
Designer's Note: I love birds and when I came across this rhyme about a cuckoo, I knew I had to incorporate it into a design. I think of spring and summer as an exciting time full of warmth and growing things, and I designed this sampler to match that feeling of exuberance. You’ll find spring and early summer plants, birds, and insects nestled among the motifs that adorn this piece.
