One of the fun things we did was a Topiary bush, which is a pom-pom trimmed down and steamed to make a very realistic bush. You can see it in the picture below, and I think I'll make a slightly larger knot garden and fit it onto that, since I didn't trim it down quite enough. We all started off with the same basic shape, but since we all went for different colours and used a different thickness of thread in our needles, it wasn't long before we all had something quite unique. One of the stitchers brought along a vegetable knot garden that she was working on, and she experimented with a strip of Marks and Spencer bag to see if that could imitate a young lettuce.
Owen's gardens have lots of techniques, and it was great to get the chance to study them in detail.
You can see in this small corner how it's possible to use lots of techniques and accessories combined.
