Two traditional interests - needlework and garding - come together in this delightful collection of original embroidery designs.
Inspired by the hand colored patterns called Berlin artwork that were popular in Victorian times. Stafford Whiteaker has created strikingly original designs based on and English country garden.
Pansies, nasturtiums, hollyhocks, primroses and tulips are just some of the flowers that have lent their shapes and colors to these patterns. Birds, bees and garden animals also grace these exciting designs for each season. .
