English Garden

This is my stitching for an English Garden RR. Laurie N pieced the lovely background with the adorable little girl and I added daffodils, forget-me-nots, violets, larkspur, roses and rosebuds. Most of the flowers are done in silk ribbon but some are done in perle cotton #8. The violets in the foreground don't show up too well in the photo. I overstitched the photo too but not sure that shows up too well either. What a delight this was to work on!

Cathy! I enlarged the picture and was able to see every detail! So pretty, I love what you did to the photo! All your flowers are beautiful, thank-you!!

He is wonderful this girl's landscape garden, and the points of borderies are of a delicious delicacy!

Beautiful day
