English country garden

I really enjoyed making this embroidery of a row of Georgian houses with a pretty garden. I am imagining that these houses are in Islington, but way back in time when it would have been less urban. So an English Country Garden still fits as an accurate description! I started with a blank canvas and added the silk and linen layers before I knew where the design was going. The houses just appeared from the shapes that I had created so I went with it. The best bit was growing the flowers in the garden!
