A very Interesting piece Is the design of that well known subject,
"Sweet Pens." So great Is the range of colors and combina
tion of these erratic flowers that In describing their Infinite
variety It is difficult to select any one type for in a mention of
any of them It would seem that others quite as attractive are
undescribed. The superior blending of colors notice in this
sample, the delightful conception of the artist ,ln selecting the
shades, In carrying out the design of the flower is of interest to
anyone who admires the beautiful in art worked out with the silk.
