Finished!! This is a little pincushion (can be a paperweight if filled with heavy stuff) with a tiny potager (vegetable garden). It has rows of cabbages, purple sprouting broccoli, cauliflowers and carrots, with a beehive (complete with bees!) in the middle, and flowers rambling up the walls. The quote on the bottom says “Eat your greens”. This is my vegetable garden for the time being 🤗.
It’s a very challenging project with a combination of canvas work and several embroidery stitches. Doing French knots and bullion stitch on canvas is really hard on the fingers!! It’s a kit by Sue Hawkins. (She sells her kits from her website.) .
I started this sometime in 2007 and finally finished it last night. 😅 .
