Comments: This is a rather big project. The congress cloth used measures 18 1/2" wide by 24 1/2" long. Threads used are mostly Soie d'Alger (a 7-ply silk) together with a few other threads. There are 145 pages of instructions.
You will see photos of what I have stitched so far.
There are two pots of hollyhocks, one on each side of the house.
