The embroidery is very simple - backstitch, lazy daisy stitch and french knots. The sewing is very basic too, a bit of bamboo batting, linen and cotton. The white polka dots on blue cotton remind me of falling snowflakes, the sleeping nature wrapped up in blankets of snow and a tiny garden in a coffee cup saved by the warmth of the house.

Some Sad Things and Some Happy Things
Remember my garden in a coffee cup? Well, I have some sad news. It's gone. Forever I suppose. We went away and one week without watering was enough for this tiny green world to suffer so much that it could not bare it anymore. It dried out. Once we got back home, I tried to revive it but the damage was too much for the little plant to handle. It is sad but luckily I split this plant in two a few weeks after I bought it because it was getting a bit wild in the tiny cup. It's growing ok in a large pot outside. So I should be happy that it was only a small part of the plant that died. Now I have to find some other plant, that can survive without water for long periods of time. Any suggestions?
