About this design: Potted Lavender, oblong lawns, square corner gardens, pathways and a standard rose in the centre allows you to enjoy the pleasure of a Knot Garden ‘inside’ all year round. The garden is worked in delicate pinks, greens, lavender and beading on a very pastel tone of blue hand painted canvas.
A graceful pink stand rose is the central attraction of the Knot Garden. Fir trees are in opposite corners of one of the outer borders, Merrilyn frequently makes part of her designs non uniform ie there may be a feature in one or opposite corners of a border.
How can I use this design: This series of small creative canvas pieces can be made into a pocket purse ie a small bag with a long ‘handle’ that is worn as a shoulder bag, framed, made into the centre piece of a ‘green bag’, a small box cushion, the centre piece of a cushion, glued onto the cover of a blank book /folder or glued onto the front of a small concertina office storage system.
