Sit every day and stitch one flower – by the end of a year you’ll have a beautiful tapestry of different flowers. Use any thread – leftovers from kits, last-thread-of-the-skein – anything goes! Carolyn says: “Over the course of 2017, I embroidered a piece that consisted of four 18” x 18” “canvases”, stitching a flower or two every day using a tangled up bunch of stray embroidery threads I had; cotton floss, perle cottons, silks, overdyed, off-brand flosses. (You get the idea!). So sit back, grab your box of threads and stitch your garden.” Finished piece measures 223w x 225h, or 16" x 16" on 14ct. fabric.
A 12-ply, 100% silk hand-dyed floss. Good light reflection. Dyed in many of the same colours as Watercolours and Wildflowers, the colours may be more subdued as silk takes the dyes differently than cotton.
