Work Description

My March project is based around a day visit in May 2018 to Hughenden Manor. This is in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, about 45 minutes away from our home. My family & I explored the gardens, the house & sat for a while looking over the valley, with the church in clear sight. We had a wonderful day, taking lots of photographs & getting lots of inspiration for future craft projects. Hughenden Manor, is owned by The National Trust. It is described as a red brick Victorian mansion, which was owned in the 1800's by the Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield. The colours I used were: Green Pink Yellow Coral I wanted to depict not just the red brick of the mansion & church, but also incorporate the flowers seen in the walled garden & over the valley. This year, I want to explore different textures, so used a 'Knot Stitch'. The stitches used in this stitch is: Knit Purl 2 Together Slip Stitch
