Cross stitch Garden
The simples joys of life, like holding a watering hose on a warm summer days and tending to one's garden. Brought to you with a contemporary touch by Samantha Purdy.
The happy gardener is equipped with a straw hat and a nice denim overalls. The rows are well aligned and tidy, geometric style. However the presence of birds, butterflies and lady birds gives them life.
We were delighted to receive this new pattern by Perrette Samouiloff because it triggered so many project ideas. Each little motif is easy to place according to your own constraints, depending what you want to stitch. You can make a recipe book cover, or space out the motif on a shopping bag (great for the farmer's market!). If you've got little ones around, you can stitch different baby bibs and place mats (they will all fight for the carrots!). Or you could stitch it as it is, beautiful in any case.

Organizing a tea-party in the garden, gathering bunches of fresh flowers and tending to one's plants - summertime is full of pleasures. An easy to stitch cross stitch sampler, with fresh colors and charming detail, designed by Riverdrift House.
This unique seed packet design is also full of creative possibilities. Make sure you mount them as actual packs, so they have a dimensional effect. Fill with actual seeds and use as a gift for a gardener friend. Or make a decorative box frame with the packs displayed side by side. Or how about sewing onto a gardening apron. The possibilities are endless. A design by Lesley Teare.
