I’ve been busy trying to catch up with Christmas preparations over the last couple of weeks leaving me with little time to stitch my garden. Three weeks ago I’d made a start on my second big piece for my fabric book, this embroidery depicts the lawn and the summerhouse area….
Since then I’ve finished the gravel path, started to add a hint of paving stones in front of the summerhouse and back-stitched the roof of the summerhouse.
I have also finally started stitching some of the plants. I still need to add the small shrubs with applique, that will make a big difference to the piece as the borders do have quite a few shrubs as well as the shrub roses.
I’ve begun to embroider the plants round the pond, so there’s a couple of hostas, some irises and some solomon’s seal…
Hopefully once Christmas is out of the way I will start to make better progress!
