Beaded all over lace shawl was inspired by April Love painting by Arthur Hughes and Pre-Raphaelite Art Movement, designed for Tri’Coterie Yarn Club.

’Love is hurt with jar and fret,
Love is made a sweet regret;
Eyes with idle tears are wet,
Idle habits link us yet.
What is love? for we forget:
Ah, no! no.

April Love is Arthur Hughes’s best-known work, and one of the most popular of all Pre-Raphaelite paintings. When it was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1856, the accompanying catalogue contained a quotation from one of the songs in Tennyson’s ‘The Miller’s Daughter’, in which the young lovers fear the passing of their love.
