OCF – CHAT 024 – The Convent’s Herbal Garden Mandala (was Mystery II)

herbal garden
by Melinda Fenton on 25 count Lugana evenweave

In Medieval times most convents owned a varied herbal garden, providing all the remedies which were known and used in these times. These gardens were arranged symmetrically and in special orders, so certain herbs or roots could easily be found and prepared in the apothecary tracts of the monastery.

Here you now can stitch such a garden, filled with healing plants. Mostly cross stitch, but you will add lots of Special Stitches for dimension and use beautiful variegated silks, metallics, beads, and sparklies for added interest.


The mere design size of this Mandala is 260 x 260 stitches.
