Secret Garden


Hello again and hoping that you have had a great weekend, I wanted to share this piece which has become my "secret garden" - I am not quite sure who lives in there but it looks warm and inviting! It may be hard to see all the stitching but it is heavily machine stitched to enhance the watercolours and wool rovings.



Some detail photos




This is watercolour on muslin, wool roving and threads!
About 18" x 18"

~ have a great week ~
