Welcome to the "Greenhouse of Oddities" stitch-along!
This stitch-along features a greenhouse filled with the worlds’ most unusual plants, a few animal friends and a couple of human visitors. Each week will have a different theme and will include an index with information about the featured plants. All of the plants in the greenhouse represent real and naturally occurring flora. In this weird botanical stitching adventure, nature is stranger than fiction.

The pattern contents will be kept secret until each section is released.
