Within the pages of Life in Seasons, Nicola Jarvis has masterfully harnessed the full extent of her expansive creative talent and layered together a multi-faceted story using her sketches, paintings, poetry, photography and of course, her embroidery.

The stories Nicola tells are all beautifully woven together through her daily walks with her trusty canine Quince and cover her own life experiences, her passion for nature and the conservation of wildlife, exploration of the local flora and fauna, the spectacular English countryside, and the changing of the seasons.

All this is beautifully presented in a 160-page hardcover book featuring eight brand new needlework projects that Nicola designed, painted and stitched exclusively for this publication. Not forgetting of course, this is a step-by-step, how-to project book that also comes with two lift-out pattern sheets.

Life in Seasons, Volume 1 | Winter & Spring is out now.

PROJECTS: Seascape. The water greets the sky surrounded by cow parsley, daisies and a scattering of tiny flowers | Hollyhocks. Elegant spires, in shades of dusky pink and soft green, stretch towards the sky | Bluebells Under the Birches. A carpet of pure, blue flowers spreads beneath a canopy of birch leaves | Topiary in the Border. Perfect topiary spheres rise above a colourful sea of iris, geum, verbena and echinacea flowers | Amongst the Daisies. A field of fresh, white daisies, some crowned with a golden eye, spread beneath the sun | Irises. Rich, velvety petals of the purple iris rise above a sea of sword-like leaves | Cottage Garden. Swathes of flowers, large and small, meld together in perfect harmony | Alliums &Topiary. Globes of purple allium flowers echo the neatly clipped sphere of a topiary ball | Silver Birches. Graceful trunks of ghostly white rise through a woodland garden of ferns and cow parsley | Foxgloves. In every shade of pink, proud foxgloves stand sentinel over their garden companions | Cow Parsley. The delicate lace of white cow parsley flowers decorates a field of wheat | Poppies & Cornflowers. Papery, pink skirts of poppy flowers twirl amongst the cornflowers.
