Finally... it took me a very long time tonight to fill in this little part of the garden, which is only 1/4 of Part 8 of Mystery IX... I have to do three more of these this month. Martina is using a variegated silk for the background, so all of those individual x's are very time consuming. So.... is that what artichokes look like? I thought I had seen one before, and it sure didn't look like these purple things - LOL! I will have to research that now! I apologize for the overexposed photo - yet again - I stitch until late and then have to take photos indoors in a finished basement, with not the greatest lighting - sigh. **I did find an artichoke website, and they showed a purple one! OK... now they look legitimate to me.
