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.
