Take Time to Garden from the Take Time Series. Gardening is one of the healthiest things you can do – first, nothing improves your mood like some time in the garden. Plus, it’s excercise! Not to mention the wonderful vegetables and fruits harvested from your little plot.

The sampler contains 17 boxes, done in a palette of over-dyed silks. Many “specialty” stitches are used – there are diagrams and written instructions for all of them, making this design approachable – if you have patience (and Google), your initial skill level with specialty stitches will not be important.
