I don't have a lot more done on And a Garden Grew.  A few flowers, bugs, birds etc.  Still,  I have started the arbor and I have decided on the saying. I'm going with the third one "There are always flowers for those who want to see them" by Henri Matisse.  It will probably take me a whole day to figure out how to center it, ugh. That is a whole new problem all its own. I'm sure I can do it though, I've done it before.  Sometimes I've done it right:)

I won't even start to do that until I finish along both sides, the center top and the arbor. There is plenty of time to worry about the saying later.

Honestly I've done a lot on this since I took it out and started again. I'm pretty happy with myself for not putting back in the drawer. I just keep thinking it will look great in the living room when I repaint.

I plan on stitching on it all day today and tomorrow. The forcast is for rain so I better take advantage of the stitching weather. 

Thanks for visiting. See you tomorrow.


  1. Hi, your Flower Garden is shaping up beautifully. I saw yours and now have the pattern on my wishlist. You picked the very best quote to go into the space. I love it. I can't wait to see your finish.

    By the way, I'm glad I found your blog. I really enjoy reading it!

  2. Thanks Karen:) I can't wait until its done either. I am stitching away on it today and have gotten all of the left side done and the stuff above the arbor. Now I'm working on the right side. I'm glad you like the quote. I think it will be perfect if I can just center it right and figure out what type alphabet I want to use. Thanks for stopping. Glad you found me.

  3. I think you picked the right saying too!
