I just discovered this blog and the wonderful layouts for the Funky Flowers. I have one flower at the moment, but I'm going to the cross stitch store this weekend for the fabric and I'll pick up more then.
Like Christine, I'd love to do my garden on black, but I, too, have problems seeing the threads. So a shade of white it will be!
I plan on stitching all 24 flowers on 28 count over 2. I detest outlining but in a situation like this it's really worth the effort. I'll think positive thoughts and maybe stitch a flower, outline some boxes, stitch a flower, outline some more boxes, etc. :)
