Geraniums have never really been my favourite flower but the pure essential oil obtained from this humble plant is utterly glorious, and can be extremely effective treatment for PMT mood swings and cramps. (Betcha didn’t know that!) Despite the lovely smell, they were another of my Mittagong garden casualty.
This sweet little Geranium design from Elaine’s Botanicals is a perfect starting point for the novice embroiderer. Employing basic embroidery stitches of double running stitch and long and short satin stitch, the repetition of stitches helps garner confidence and maybe the motivation to move on to more challenging projects.
