My Garden

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingPhotobucket - Video and Image HostingThis is a tiny sampler by my favourite designers Shepherds Bush it is only 2"wide x 3"high and did not take long to stitch at all. It is stitched on 32ct sand linen from the kit with DMC and overdyed thread. Can you see the charm of the little bee buzzing his way through the flowers doing his daily work... It has only one speciality stitch which is Oblong Cross Stitch Variation which you can see done in the gold .

I have had a snazzy type of glass put in the frame , it is called 'Water White' and really does not seem as if there is any glass there at all...it is brilliant :-)

That looks so pretty framed up Helen, and your stitching is lovely.

This is a very sweet design, made more so by the painted mat - very nice, Helen! I've never heard of "water white" glass, but it's perfect. :D
