Stitching My Garden SAL

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!

This stitch-a-long is organised by Avis, please follow the links to see what everyone else has been stitching.

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!
