Last, but not the least, is the garden. Click on the photo to enlarge it and you will see many little stitches and beads that make this one a true sampler: there is a tiny bit each of chain stitch, running stitch, back stitch, fly stitch, fern stitch, lazy daisy and even a few French knots if you like to push the boat out. Of course you can choose to use more beads and do the lot in back stitch!
I love drawing quirky little flowers and this was a natural design choice for me. I wanted an understated garden to go with the lovely little house and used the flowers both here and in the 'Home' design.
And that is the end of my story :) I'm so curious to see which design will be the most popular, as everybody I've shown them to has had a clear favourite and so far there's been no pattern!
