Here's something for your Adam & Eve collection...all the key elements of the story are here, along with a portion of the verse from Genesis 8: ...and the Lord God planted a garden.
The silk berry also includes a few tiny straight stitches for detail and the grassy area surrounding the serpent is a patterned satin stitch which adds textural detail. The apples on the linen berry are woven spider web stitches; there is also some over-one stitching and a few other details to round out the design features.
Eden Berry is sold as a “partner” chartpak, a format which includes instructions and charts for linen and silk berries.
