One of my customers who was stitching "And A Forest Grew" suggested that I should work on a design called "And A Garden Grew". When I found the verse written by Henry Ward Beecher, everything came together.
I hope you will enjoy stitching the may flowers, bees, butterflies and other garden creatures in this design.
Verse: "Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into."
The booklet has 22 pages, which include lots of mini samplers and ideas for using this design.
Design size: 290 X 290 stitches
Fabric used: Picture This Plus, 32 ct Belfast Ale
ASK ABOUT FABRIC FOR THIS PIECE!
FABRIC NEEDS TO BE DARK ENOUGH SO THAT LIGHT FLOSS COLORS SHOW!
Correction: In Section 1, the floss color for the entire stem of the tall flower (with the diamond shaped stem, next to the first butterfly, upper left-hand corner on chart) is DMC 935
