I know I'm a little late with my April Goddess, not because she was a problem to stitch, but because she needed a companion piece and he was!
April is the month that we lost my Nanna, then a year later, my Grandad so it always reminds me of them. It is also the time that lots of daffodils are about - the flowers my Nanna always used to buy me for Easter. With such a lot of connections to them how could my April Goddess be anything other than a tribute to my Nanna? The daffodil connection is obvious. I finished her quite early on but decided it would be unfair not to give her a companion as my Grandparents were pretty inseparable. He has a lovely colourful heart as my Grandad was a painter and decorator and used lots of colour. The black and white cabochon represents the humbugs he always used to eat, the poppy is for his army service and the star because that's what he was - and is.
