My Neighbor's Garden: A Mystery

Ruth Schmuff has unveiled her Summer 2023 mystery class--"My Neighbor's Garden."  This is an abstract landscape by Brooke Connor with birds, a tree, buildings and a rolling dreamscape.

There will be three lessons over the summer for this piece.  As usual, I'll post Ruth's updates here as she and her students work on this fun design.

The first update shows beaded vines and a green swirl area with pattern.  I think some of the purple background has been stitched, too.

Lots of outlining and a fun open background stitch are created in lesson two but the star is the bubble tree.

Lesson three has stitched birds and metal flowers for a special embellishment.
