Completely worked in all silk threads, the lower entrance to the cottage garden is through the little trellised gate set in a white picket fence, overgrown with tall delphinium, lupins, and buttercups.
A rambling vine of sweet peas tumbles over the trellis overhead. Then you walk by a multitude of Victorian garden beds filled with pretty flowers, grassy areas, hedges and little white fences, until you reach the lovely stylized little English cottage in the distance.
It has a thatched roof and old fashioned roses climbing over the front door under the eaves and is surrounded by herbs and flowers. A delight of textures and techniques for the experienced stitcher.
This Learning Sampler is ideal for the beginning specialty stitcher! You will have a chance to embroider 15 different stitches and a small row of Hardanger.
