    What an absolutely lovely Easter gift. I can hardly wait to get started. What I am about to say is in NO way intended as a criticism . . . . Just a thought for future pages. I could never get the last line on page two to print. I could see it on my computer but I tried every thing I could think of to get that last line on outlines to print on the page. I finally hand copied it on the back of page two so that I would have it with the rest of the page. Just a note as info for your future print jobs.

    Love your work, have your book, and working on one from your book. You are an especially talented lady so keep on creating in your field and I look forward to receiving your e-mails. Until I was introduced to your site I had never heard of long and short stitching. My experiences in embroidery were very limited. Thanks for being online with all that you do.

    Hopefully, you can travel to the USA some day and have a class in the state of Georgia.

    Thanks again.

  2. Merci beaucoup pour le joli patron, c’est généreux de votre part.
    Heureuse Pâques pour Vous et les Vôtre.

  3. Trish, thank you for your generous Easter gift! It is beautiful and will be enjoyed by many. Easter Blessings to you and yours.

  4. Before leaving for the the office this morning, I have checked my mail because it was one of these days when one needs extra energy to move on. What a great surprise it was to open your mail and see the Easter present. These violets are so exquisite and delicate. I just love your books and have been sharing them with our Belgian embroidery group. We gather in a small village south of Belgium and we just love attempting to learn from them. Thank you very much, Trish.

  5. Thank you for such a lovely and really special gift from you in the form of violets, Trish.
    I have to echo what others say–I am so thoroughly enjoying your published books about thread painting. Colour Schemes is absolutely a winner! Thanks so much for sharing such talent!

  6. Hello Trish.   Thank you for this great embroidery Easter Gift. I do not use DMC floss after finding Finca. Please try Finca embroidery floss, you will not use any other floss after embroidering your items. If you cannot find this wonderful floss, try buying floss on ebay.  Finca has a wonderful shine which makes your embroidery sparkle.  Pat/texas/USA

    1. Patricia-I’ve never tried Finca. Is there one that you like best? Perle, metallic, or mouline?

  7. I just got home from an afternoon shift to find this in my mailbox! how lovely 🙂 thank you so much Trish, and a happy Easter to you as well xo

  8. Thank you Trish – what a lovely gift. Can’t stitch it for this Easter because I’ve injured my right hand but will save it for next Easter. Happy and peacefull Easter

  9. Hi Trish! I’ve just received my copy of Colour Confidence in Embroidery and I have no words to explain how I appreciate it! I’m following the steps of Fresh ideas for beginners and it’s so well done that it’s as having home the teacher. So thank you really much for your didattic work, rare, precious and effective!

  10. Lovely! Thank you so much! I won’t be able to work it in time for this Easter (I’m still working my way through your beautiful butterflies, LOL), but look out next year…

  11. Thank you very much ! C’est vraiment très gentil de nous faire ce cadeau!
    I’m French and my English is not very good.

    I make now a Patch with American States symbols, appliqued birds and embroyed flowers. Your violet will join Jasmine, Rose, black eye Susan and others.
    Thanks again and happy Easter to you
