Knotwork Garden

My garden is now finished.

And for the curious - the process of giving it a haircut. The loops are done in turkey stitch, and I left all the tails hanging. So my first step was to cut off the tails. I actually quite like this overgrown look, but it does hide the other stitching.

So now the apprentice gardener sets to work.

Almost finished, just a few touch up bits now, and we get the result in the first photo.

Here's the pile of what was chopped off:

Not bad for the apprentices first try :)

LOVE! Are you going to add more to it like in his books?

Not to this one - this was just a taster class piece. One day I might do a bigger garden though - it's really quite fun (apart from all those boring turkey knots).

What an amazing effect it gives & a very lovely finish. :0)
