Description: A unique "welcome" design featuring a rose border framing an idyllic landscape garden scene complete with gazebo, rose trellis, and a picturesque bridge spanning a pond with graceful swans. The over-one lettering continues the theme: this design is stitched almost entirely in whole stitches, with only a few accent specialty stitches and beads.

Background Information: This piece was designed in response to requests for a "Welcome" design in the style of two English Garden-type samplers I had done previously. Also, I had received requests for designs with swans and roses...so I incorporated them both into English Garden Welcome.

Stitching Comments: This design is a very easy one, since it's done almost entirely in whole stitches. If a much simpler design is desired, the Welcome lettering could be stitched by itself, with only the border immediately around it for finishing. If you have already stitched either the English Garden Sampler or the English Cottage Sampler, this design would make a good companion piece.

Specialty Stitches: diagonal satin stitch, french knot
