Gingerbread Garden close up

I thought that some of you might like to have a closer look at the details in Gingerbread Garden - this is such a little piece, just over 2 inches wide and about 8 inches long, that it's hard to see the details in the original image I posted yesterday.  Some of the specialty stitches that Thea included in this design are Foursided Pulled Stitches, Sheaf Stitch, Half Rhodes Stitch, Satin Stitch, Drawn Thread with Hemstitching, Backstitches, French Knots, Cross Stitch over One, Kloster Blocks, and Plait Stitches. 

Now time to return to the fireside on this chilly spring night and continue stitching on Kathy's Heart Note Alley from Gracewood Stitches, a project I'm doing over a period of several months through the Sticklounge Yahoo group.
