Ladies Garden Journal
From Beth- So many things inspired this series, from my Grandmother's flower gardens to early 20th century periodicals, but I have always had a soft spot for Edwardian gardening journals. Every time I would see one, I would think, "How can I turn that into cross stitch?" Here is your answer! So, take a stitching walk with me through a whimsical garden and meet the flowers that live there. First on our list is Sweet William, one of three "Gentle-blooms." We will also meet three "Lady-blossoms." With the Finishing Kit, you can turn your needle-sketches into your own gardening journal.
