Holiday Productivity

To make up for the lack of actual flowers, I managed to finally finish off this flower embroidery. It's about 8 inches wide.

It's been my holiday embroidery for too many years. That gives me three embroideries to lace onto card over Easter, and then find a good framer.  Diana Lampe has some lovely books of garden embroideries, and over the years I've made several gardens and embroidered monograms as gifts. Given that I can do a garden in a week if I have a deadline to work to, it's embarrassing to think that this one has travelled to Corfu, Crete and Paris.


  1. Gorgeous handwork Sabrina! I have a counted cross stitch picture I did on linen that is a bit similar. It has hummingbirds hovering over the flowers though. The monograms look lovely as well. Have a wonderful day! SCS is still having so many issues I am waiting before I upload again. Judi :-)

  2. You are such a talented lady. I love your embroidery.

  3. These are stunning. You are quite gifted. Your stitches are so precise. It does indeed look like a garden. There is so much wonderful detail in those monograms.
