Today it is time for the tenth stitchery link up over at Super Mom - No Cape! For my project today, I thought I would share with you an embroidery project that I drew and then stitched when I was fairly new to the blogging world in 2013. I first posted about it here.
It is a cute little garden scene which I really loved stitching as I tried to include areas for lots of different embroidery stitches. The design includes lazy daisy flowers, back stitch, running stitch, french knots, blanket stitch, cross stitch and a couple of others.
When I had finished the embroidery I framed it using a hoop but in order to add some extra interest to the hoop I covered the wood by wrapping it with some variegated thread. I really liked the effect.
I sent it to a friend as a gift and, it still remains one of my favourite little embroidered pictures.
If you would like to stitch your own version of this pattern you can download my sketch here.
