Garden of Life - Blackbird Designs




An old finish finally framed. This is 'Garden of Life' by Blackbird Designs which was a SAL I joined in on,  I finished it a couple of years ago and never got round to doing anything with, well now I have framed this lovely piece.

I've stitched it on 40ct cream linen using the recommended threads, and enclosed it in a lovely Mother of Pearl Frame I bought in Marks and Spencer, this is now sitting on the drawers in my bedroom.

How lovely, Su. What an interesting frame, being made from Mother of Pearl. So nice to get an old finish finally framed.

Thanks also for the information on Alphabets. I should have looked further into options before I stitched it but thought I'd just 'wing it' for Summer Iris.
