Clematis embroidery

This Christmas I decided to try and make gifts for family members (in addition to buying them presents of course!). My Mom is a keen gardener and flower arranger so I created her this custom clematis embroidery – embroidery currently being my craft of choice:) The design was based on an illustration from a lovely old Reader’s Digest Library of the Garden set of books which I often refer to for inspiration when I want a nice floral image.
