This wonderful cross stitch design reminded me of completely manicured English gardens, and I understood once sewn, it would become a delightful piece of garden decoration. The stitched work makes use of one shade of over dyed green embroidery floss. Since it has been over colored, you will certainly see slight color shifts in the stitchery … light to dark and avocado green to hunter green. The work has been completed on an over colored brown linen which gives this piece a really earthy feel. At the center of the design is a lovely, hand repainted angel button the best compliment to this sewed work.
In completing this piece, I turned the sewing a quarter turn and mounted it on core board with a low loft quilt batting behind. It was positioned into a handcrafted & quot; & quot; home & quot; shaped box that had actually been covered with a coordinating cotton fabric. Little information at the bottom include the addition of wool mix felt flowers, yo-yo flowers, felt leaves, pearl and satin surface pins, and long stitches for stems. A hand twisted cord has been wrapped around the face of the sewn work. Added completing information consist of a grouping of ribbons that wrap the box and fulfill at the top in a gentle waterfall. A really tiny hand repainted porcelain flower button in front of a petalled felt flower is the last finishing information here. This garden angel residence box bases on 4 wooden planter shaped feet that have actually been stuffed with excelsior moss. At the front, it appears that the felt flowers are growing from the pots. Determining 7 1/2 & quot; W x 10 1/2 & quot; H x 2 & quot; & quot; D this ornamental accent piece would look beautiful nestled in among the gardening books and tools on a shelf.
