I have been having so much fun stitching on Cottage Conservatory.
This is the pattern that we were given:
I saw this window that gave me the idea to add stained glass to the windows:
So I have altered the background windows to be able to add an overdyed floss (Gloriana Tulip Festival) between the leaded glass lines.
It was a risk. Would I like it? Would it look weird? Well, I decided I like it.
I love the sunflowers too. But when the flap of the envelope is down, you don't see the sunflowers. Hmmm. I had an idea. How about if I stitch the sunflowers on the flap like they are behind the windows. You could also stitch them over the windows but I think it is clever to put them behind.
I really love how this is turning out. Isn't it pretty?
