#026 Cottage Garden Sampler

Completely worked in all silk threads, the lower entrance to the cottage garden is through the little trellised gate set in a white picket fence, overgrown with tall delphinium, lupines, and buttercups. A rambling vine of sweet peas tumbles over the trellis overhead. Then you walk by a multitude of Victorian garden beds filled with pretty flowers, grassy areas, hedges and little white fences, until you reach the lovely stylized little English cottage in the distance. It has a thatched roof and old fashioned roses climbing over the front door under the eaves and is surrounded by herbs and flowers. A delight of textures and techniques for the experienced stitcher, this Learning Sampler is ideal for the beginning specialty stitcher! You will have a chance to stitch the Scotch Stitch, the Gobelin Filling Stitch, French Knot, Hemstitch, Ray Stitch, Algerian Eye Pulled Stitch, Lazy Daisy, Sheaf Stitch, modified Diamond Eye, Plait Stitch, simple Hardanger with Dove's Eyes, Fly Stitch, Queen Stitch, Knit Stitch, Four Sided Pulled Stitch, and Satin Stitches/Bargello!
