Happy hyacinths

There's a new pattern available in the shop. Hyacinth Holidays. Aren't hyacinths lovely at this time of year? When we need something bright and colourful.

Here's a tip for ya. Instead of using threads of different shades of the same colour to achieve a look similar to the blue hyacinth below, use a variegated thread. But jump all over the place, so the different colours of the thread gets spread all over the area you are stitching.
