Gather Me a Posy ~ framed stitchery
Finished size ~ to suit an A4 sized document frame

– In the garden lies a hidden world, most easily seen by little ones. There you’ll find daisy chain crowns, buttercups that know your secrets and an infinite number of wishes to wish. This nostalgic piece reminds us of our childhood… a lovely design to stitch for your home or to create as a gift for a special child’s bedroom.

– The delicate wreath design is worked with simple stitches and embellished with daisy centres and leaves, cut from easily made double-sided fabric. The leaves are only attached with central embroidery, allowing them to sit up a little from the background. This adds a subtle dimensional quality to the design. To complete the design, the wreath panel is edged with easily pieced borders, incorporating the daisy centre and daisy leaf fabrics.

– The “Gather Me a Posy” pattern includes an iron on transfer for the embroidered panel, a full sized pattern sheet and an abundance of photographic and illustrated instruction.
