Spring Awakenings

This is my 100th post to my blog. I want to celebrate this by sharing a pattern with you that was shown in my last post.

Early in the spring at the garden is a small 4 petal purple flower growing in the grass. That flower is what inspired me to create and share this pattern. If you click on the title it will take you to the pattern which you may download and print. This was my first time to create and share with a pdf file using the new Adobe 9.1 reader, so if you have a problem let me know. If you don't have adobe you will need to download it free to open the pdf file. I have included lots of color pictures to make it easier for you to put the design together.

I originally created the design using variations of deep red and orange as shown in the picture. When I started thinking about the flowers of spring in this area most of them are shades of purple, yellow or white with an occasional pink. Lots of yellows and orange flowers start appearing early summer.So I changed the design to purples.
