Little garden on a hill - ready to fly off to Japan

Cast on stitch flowers and French knots made with Antique Rose and Golden Green Chameleon perlé no.12, a chirping little fellow who landed on the wisteria branch,


and white pebbles made using French knots and seed stitches with one strand of white DMC stranded cotton, were my last additions to Hideko's garden. 


Sitting on the garden bench or swing, if you wish, enjoying the spring breeze, the scent of the flowers, listening to the bird's song and the sound of a friend's steps on the pebble paths, coming over for tea... Isn't that a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon?



Have a beautiful weekend, Everyone!

Oh Dear Manya, that is the most beautiful work of embroidery I have ever seen! It has been a total delight to watch your process from beginning to end!! Hideko will cherish this block. Your delicate and thoughtful stitches make me feel awkward and clumsy in comparison, but know that I am stitching your snowball with lots of love! Hugs, Cathy

Oh my! you've done it again! Your work is so precious and sweet - I love how it all comes to life and makes me want to get the needles out. Hideko will certainly be thrilled to receive this beauty.

Mikor kezded tanítani? Ezek olyan szinten szépek, várj... ez nem is jó szó rájuk. De nem tudok jobbat ... a szép egy nagyon szép szó... tanácstalan vagyok...és csak nézek a szememmel.
