Having completed the “Blue Garden”, I now propose to tackle together the “Garlands”.

This is a very nice design to embroider and it will let you practice the stitches used in the Blue Garden.

Of course in following the tutorials you will have the opportunity to learn some new stitches and discover ribbon embroidery.

I had the chance to see this design interpreted in many color combinations following the imagination of each person  and I saw it finished mounted in cushion, in make up bag, in book cover and even in tray bottom. Believe me, it is always so beautiful.


I suggest we work as we did for the Blue Garden.

I will post every week detailed instructions of a pattern with pictures, stitches details and the list of threads used.

I welcome any questions you can ask me about the work in progress.

You can get the printed template on sand colored linen (original) or on vanilla colored linen here.

During this project, the design is on sale for 39.- CHF instead of 48.- CHF

To make this project even more accessible, provided you care to do some preparatory work yourself, I’m giving away the design here.
