-- My Aunties Garden -- Every time I visit my auntie, I'm impressed by the garden in her backyard. It's big, it's surprising and it's well kept. Even though she's an elderly woman, she still loves to work in her garden. I wish my own garden looked like hers! And so this cross stitch design was inspired by my auntie's garden.
The pattern This pattern is 204 stitches wide and 133 stitches high. Use the counted stitch calculator to calculate the measurements of your canvas and project. The 8 pages of this pattern will print correctly on 'letter size' as well as on 'size A4'.
Canvas & threads As you can see this pattern has many shades of green and quite a few backstitches. This example is stitched on rather thick linen with 5,5 threads per cm (28 count - 28 threads per inch) with 2 strands of floss, in 26 colors.
