My new WIP--Eden was a Garden

I had this very pretty freebie in my stash for many years. I decided this was the spring it would be just a little bit more than page in a binder. It's by Needle Maid Designs and is called Eden Was a Garden.

I am stitching this for my mom. She takes great comfort in her garden, and is out there with her watering can all summer. It is a sweet little design and one I hadn't seen stitched up before. I'm stitching it on PTP Flapper. Maybe it wasn't the perfect fabric for this, but it's working, and the color was hard to resist. It called out to be used for something "springy". I'm going to redo it for myself in different colors, now that I know what's going on, but I think my mom will love it.

I couldn't keep this to myself, but the chart said no sharing and the link on the bottom of the chart is dead, so I took a gamble and checked with a site I use occasionally. By the power of the Wayback Machine, I found it for you: Eden was a Garden Although this feels kinda shifty for some intangible reason, it's completely legal, and you can find some good stuff. I hope that the simple joy of this brightens your day. Enjoy!

Cute design Rachel! Your mom will love it! The computer is moving slow this morning so I couldn't get the wayback machine to come up but will try later.

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
