The Butterfly Garden

At the Knitting and Stitching show in Harrogate last year I fell for a cross-stitch kit called The Butterfly Garden. It’s made by The Drawn Thread and a sample was on display on Chris Wilkinsons of The Nimble Thimble. Now I have done a lot of cross-stitch over the years but my eyes are not what they were so it was fingers crossed time that I would be able to do it!

It’s gorgeous, I’m really enjoying stitching it, lots of different stitches for the flowers and uses Caron Waterlily threads which are subtly shaded. I’m about half way through now, the bees and little butterflies are stitched over one thread which is tiny, but I managed better than I thought I would! This is the design so far.

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
