From the designer:
So sweet and charming, this design is a "must stitch". It shows a precious child in a garden of hollyhocks and lavender, she holds white roses with satin ribbons. Combinations of embroidery stitches using Pearl Cotton and floss create the illusion of real lace across the bottom like a picket fence enclosing her garden.
The top of the fabric is dyed so that she has sunshine on top and the darker blue is a background for the lace.
This design is dedicated to my new granddaughter Emma Marie Post who makes the breeze sound like joyous tinkling bells.
Recommended fabric: 32ct Linen - we create the special 2 tone piece for this design, but you could choose to stitch it on the same fabric as Isabella's Garden to make them a pair. The special 2 tone fabric is availale in 32ct Belfast linen only.
