The violet loved to have her tread upon its purple leaves;
Before her gentle presence birds ceased not their caroling;
She shed a tranquil joy on all, as does the early Spring.
She never chid her serving-maids about their tapestry;
And yet, of all that busy hive, she was the fair Queen Bee.
excerpt from How Lady Blanche Arundel held Wardour for King Charles. Historical & Legendary Ballads & Songs by George Walter Thornbury, 1876.
I will be releasing coordinating patterns later this year for Winter and Autumn which were past Collective Stitch themes.
