Garden Embroideries from the Past.

 Having just recently enjoyed working the garden on and around the wall and gateway, it reminded me how much I have enjoyed sewing other garden scenes in the past. The one above was based on a lovely quiet corner in a large established garden, with huge pots dotted about, not all with anything growing in them.
 Another corner with pots, this time with plants growing in them, almost swamped by the nasturtiums and other flowers growing around the bases.
 This garden was purely imaginary, worked on a hand felted base, I just embroidered the flowers wherever the colours of the felt dictated.
 Another walled garden embroidered almost 20 years ago. Whilst all the other pieces in this post have sold, this one I have kept, as it was a breakthrough piece of art for me at the time that I made it. It was the first time that I had attempted to make a textural wall and the first time that I had embroidered vegetation on wash away fabric to be applied individually when washed and dried.

They are gorgeous! No wonder so many have sold. Very inspirational.
