Alpine Seasons Garden

It's finished!!! I'm quietly happy dancing (we have a guest staying!)


Stitched on 32ct Pirongia Mist Belfast from Countrystitch (it's a little paler than the photo but I couldn't wait for the sun to come round!) with DMC subs for the NPI silks.

Here are a few more photos (click for bigger versions)










Kerry - I want to get it in the post early next week. Are you free for a visit?! Anne - I'm sorry, but it's being posted to my mum and dad in the UK asap for their 50th wedding anniversary, so it won't be here when you come over. But I do have one or two other WIPs on the go for you to see...!

  1. Nicki, it is absolutely beautiful. You've outdone yourself.

    I don't have the car this afternoon or I would have plopped Marcus in his carseat and be on my way already. Give me a call or drop me an email telling me when it would suit you for me to come over the next couple of days and I'll fit in with you.
