Oldies but Goodies: Amy Wolfson's "Amy's English Garden"

We've been digging around again. This time we went back to 1998, discovering a design by Amy Wolfson of Amybear Needlepoints, "Amy's English Garden."

Amy Wolfston's "Amy's English Garden"

The burgundy color palette is lovely in burgundy, cream, and antique blue silks with a couple of coordinating variegated cottons, not to mention pearly, burgundy, and dusty rose beads. It works up into a 5" x 5" finished size on French Blue 18-ct mono canvas, just the right size project to carry along with you during these last days of summer. In gathering together the threads, we found that two of them had been discontinued since the pattern's original publication. We have substituted the same color in a different thread, i.e., Splendor for the antique blue Elegance and Encore for the antique rose Overture.

Amy also provides a couple of alternative colorways in dark blue and dark green, which we haven't shown but can, of course, provide on request. Just e-mail us at customerservice@scarletthread.com to ask. If you would prefer a different color that matches your taste better, just e-mail us with your preference and we'll create the colorway for you. Sara Leigh has been favoring teal and turquoise lately, so she may have to see what she can come up with for that color family.

This beautiful kit includes the chart, canvas, threads, beads, and needles, all for only $30.50!
