It’s washed and ironed and ready to post – Beyond The Garden Gate.
I bought this kit many years ago together with a second one called Garden Gate. The kit from The Craft Collection Ltd (75948) came with 14 ct white Aida and ample supplies of embroidery floss. The leftovers as well as what may be left from the second kit will go into a new project.
I have just finished Beyond The Garden Gate – now it’s going to get washed and ironed. Here’s a little teaser –
I’m now almost halfway through the first round of my UFO Lottery with 15 finishes, 2 projects abandoned and 18 projects left to complete. The next ones are already drawn, I’m waiting for some inspiration.
Two more areas finished – the flowers and bushes in the center and the sky. Now there are only a couple of sunflowers and the backstitching to be done.
Aaaand … Goblet #12 is finished – I see a happy dance coming up, just a little outlining left. 🙂
For the record, here are goblets #10 and #11 –
The wall and sunflower sections are finished with the backstitching still to happen –
That’s where I’m now –
I’ve already started the next part which is the flowers and greenery above the path in the center which will then be followed by the sky above it.
With a couple of extra shifts put in to keep me entertained while my loggia was being renovated, I have finished the path, including some improvisational work beneath the flowers on the left where I had to fill in an additional row.
Beyond The Garden Gate by The Craft Collection Ltd
My next UFO Lottery project is a kit from my stash bought more than fifteen years ago together with a similar one. I chose to start with this one because it had a simpler chart.
The pattern is called Beyond The Garden Gate (The Craft Collection Ltd, #75948) and it came with 14 ct white Aida. It’s a slightly kitschy an idyllic garden scene, I liked it when I bought it and still do.
I’ve already finished the gatepost and the gate without the backstitching. After I started working on the path I noticed that I had miscounted by one row. 😒 I’ll have to work around that.
Above is what I start with. I’ve split the design into nine stitching sections plus the outlines with planned updates after two completed sections.
