Comments: This is my very favorite commercial magazine. Each issue is packed with wonderful projects. I would need  to live forever to stitch all those that I love.

I do love walking in gardens and have visited many during my travels. When I saw this lovely garden, I just had to stitch it. There was not a moment hesitation. I always feel that I never do enough embroidery projects so it was pure pleasure to work on this one.
