A Country Garden for Nicki


This is an exchange piece I have just stitched for Nicki
Now I knew that Nicki loved Blackbird designs and that she liked Autumnal colours so as it was a House with a Landscape and the landscape that Nicki had asked for was very large flowers, I thought that this design was perfect for her, so I just changed the colours to more autumnal ones - I think it works and Nicki has told me she loves it so I'm pleased about that. The fabric I used is 32ct hand-dyed linen called Douglas fir. I finished it very simply as a small cushion.

A couple of you have asked if I am going somewhere or stopping blogging - The answer is NO!! I'm still here and am planning to still be here for ages to come.
