With their collection of bold and exotic plants, Winter Gardens caught the fancy of many when they came into fashion in 17th century Europe. Around this time, cross-stitch samplers featuring a wealth of flora and fauna were also becoming more popular. I’d like to think that these greenhouses inspired many an artist and embroider at the time.

Like an abstract plan for a greenhouse, this pattern features four plants in decorative pots placed in a hedge-like border pattern. This in turn is decorated with four abstract floral corners.
I hope my interpretation of a Winter Garden will inspire you to create something beautiful for your home.

This pattern measures 127 by 127 stitches – embroidered on 32-count linen it would measure approximately 8 by 8 inches (20.5 by 20.5 cm).
