Embroidery to inspire

"Blue Lass" by Jenny Hart with Dame Darcy, 2004
hand-embroidery on cotton, approx 18" x 24" 
I love Jenny Hart´s work for the colour and detail as well as the mostly non traditional subject matter.
I have started looking for inspiration for my own design to embroider. It will be a simple garland of flowers. I am thinking of something along the lines of the traditional folk designs from Mexico or the Nordic European countries with a twist.
