I’ve had this little lace collar in my head for quite some time. I’m certainly still learning embroidery and am by no means an expert, but I just wanted to jump into this one because I have been so inspired by the flowers this year. The California drought is over and the earth has things to say. The writing on this collar, which reads “I swear by all the flowers,” was taken from my favorite e. e. cummings poem, which I’ve copied below. I hope to make a few of these and maybe open up an Etsy shop soon! Stayed tuned! And thank you to my love friend Maddy for help with photos.
