More ferns

The second sheet of ferns next.  I have to confess, I don't like doing them much.  They'll look fine as part of the overall design, but on their own they're a bit dull, and pretty tedious to do.  So I'll just say that I've done them, and leave it at that.

And here they are:

The next sheet is a bit more interesting, you'll be glad to hear!


  1. what's the material you are sewing them on to?

  2. Hi Alison.  It's on fine linen (linen sheeting from Ferguson's Irish Linen, to be precise). This is lightweight but strong, and so provides a good foundation for the stitched pieces, especially as all the surrounding fabric will be cut away later.
