A Tree and a Garden

Hello to everyone

I have finished another bit of Baroque Garden, the central long row or border.  I changed the placement of the purple and brown to form a twist pattern in this central piece.  It was only a partial twist on the chart.
Only the other little tiny bit of border on the left side and part12 is done.  Then I will do the second garden of Part 11 (and then Part 13 - I will catch up, I will catch up...............)

The complete Baroque (as of now)

Detail of the central border

I also finished Part 10 of my Tree of Stitches SAL.  I am loving do this tree with all the different specialty stitches.

Part 10 - Star Stitch

I hope to make more of a headway into Baroque this weekend.

My foot is still sore, but I am walking faster (but everyone still overtakes me!).  Guess it will be another 3 or so weeks before it heals completely.

Happy stitching

Both projects look lovely.

Your tree looks like the cherry blossom tree in our garden in spring. I almost can hear the bees buzzing around it.
The castle gardens are great too.
Glad to hear your foot is healing.

Baroque is looking amazing! I really like the center, may keep that in mind whenever I start mine. The pink on the tree makes it stand out, and I love where you placed the green. I am still hunting for the right colors so I can start.

Fantastic projects! I love that tree and really want to stitch it! I signed up with the forum but haven't found time to really explore and chat!

Baroque is just gorgeous. So is your tree.

Your Baroque is so beautiful! I've been trying to ignore this Chatelaine, but your pictures are really making me want it.

Your pink Tree of Stitches is so pretty!
