Just for Jessica

This pattern is Passion Flowers from Bucilla. My dear friend Jessica picked these out months ago, and we poured over DMC's thread color chart to find the exact right colors to match her bedding.
The thread we chose:
DMC green #3363 for the stems
DMC blue #931 for the petals
DMC cream #822 for the flower centers

Of course, I didn't use the colors recommended in the pattern, but I like these simple flowers so much that I ended up doing a second set, and I've scanned the pattern so that I can reduce and enlarge the design for future use.

The simple running stitch looks so clean and simple I'm sure that I'll be using this again and again.
