Sooooooo, I haven't done a lot of stitching today on And a Garden Grew. I spent most of the day trying to decide what I'm going to do about the center section. The arbor, words etc.  I had decided against both but.......I have started the trellis and I am going to stitch it with the roses.  Now the hard part.

I need help!!! I don't want to stitch the saying that is on the design but I think maybe I want a different saying.  So I wouldn't mind a little input here. Here are a few I'm considering.  I thought I liked the first one best but the truth is I like all three.

1. The earth laughs in flowers- Ralph Waldo Emerson
2. The flower fades that is not looked upon- Edward Counsel
3. There are always flowers for those that want to see them- Henri Matisse

I think all three are fitting for the design. I have to figure it out before I continue much farther.

Let me know if you have another saying that might work. I don't want a long one, something short and to the point works for me.

See you tomorrow!!!!


  1. hello kayona! i think i was one of the first ever posters to your blog lol
    i read your post on 123 too.. i would go for 1 and 3, as they seem more cheerful in tone. but since it's all about flowers, they would all go wonderfully with your piece!
    best, tracy

  2. Hi Tracy!! I know for sure I'm going to go with 1 or 3. Today I'm not crazy about 2. I think I'm leaning towards 3.... with me, that could change though.

  3. Any of them would fit nicely but here's another suggestion

    Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature. ~Gerard de Nerval

    It will look great whatever you decide x

  4. Linda, that is a nice saying. I didn't find that one when I googled flower quotes. Thanks for your input.

  5. Hello! I adore the first quotation. I too want to replace the quote on my project too, as I think flowers do have their own little souls.
