February Small

 The next small is Garden of Love by Citrouille's Designs.  This breathtaking beauty was selected by Barb.  What amazingly gorgeous colors!  We thought this would be a good stitch to do around Valentine's Day.  

The chart calls for 32 count Vintage Meadow Rue which is currently unavailable at Inspired Needle.  However, Cathy has come up with some gorgeous substitutes, which you may see below. 


The called for flosses are by Crescent Colors Belle Soie.  They are Beanstalk, Chocolate, Empress, Fresh Raspberries and Vanilla.  If you like, Cathy is putting together one yard of each thread color and for $7.50 you can purchase a thread pack.  That makes stitching with the silks on this project very affordable.

The first fabric choice is 32 count Chestnut.  So, if you would like the 32 count Chestnut, the chart and the thread pack the price would be $23.00.

 The second fabric choice is 36 count Mocha.  So, if you would like the 36 count Mocha, the chart and the thread pack the price would be $25.00.   Please note the different between the two choices (as the fabric cost is different)
 Below is Barb's perfectly stitched Garden of Love.  I know that since I took this picture she had this framed.  I will try to get a picture of that for you all during this month. 
If you would like to order from Inspired Needle.....please click HERE.   Don't forget that there will be tax and shipping costs, but still I think that is an awesome deal!!!!


  1. Oh gosh, it's wonderful! Sigh..... I may have to join in on this one.....

  3. Gorgeous pick for February, I could see stitching it and stuffing it with rose petals and lavender.

  4. Great choice! I'll be ordering mine this weekend - love the colors.

  5. I'm going to check as soon as I can to see if I have the V Meadow Rue stashed. I know I have most of these BS colors on hand so I'll be ordering my chart and the other needed BS colors this week. It's a lovely choice for February stitching - the stitch count was not given - does anyone know? thanks Melody

  6. Melody and others that might be wondering....the stitch count for this design is 79 x 79. Barb stitched her model on 32 count Vintage Meadow Rue with ONE strand of the Belle Soie silks. I'm so sorry to currently be out of stock on the Meadow Rue, but the linens I've substituted look lovely, too.

  7. Hi. I think this SAL is a great idea. I only discovered it this morning, but I have purchased the February design and joined as a follower to your blog. I can't wait to see what the rest of the year has in store!

    Thanks for hosting.
