It is frigid here on the East Coast, as it has been for the past week. We had an easy winter last year, so the cold & snowflurries are not unexpected, but....
Oh well. Can't control the weather. But, I can stitch, & this canvas reminds me that Spring will arrive....eventually.
I am so pleased to have finished this pretty canvas. This was in my stash, & in fact had come with a stitch guide. I decided to send it to the Master, Tony Minieri, for last fall's class, as I knew he'd come up with some excellent ideas. Naturally, he did not disappoint. After the class was done, I decided to finish this before going back to the Thanksgiving house.
I loved this canvas when I saw it; the findings for the doors just make it so fun. Tony used fabulous silk threads, & great stitches for texture throughout. And of course the silk ribbons for the flowers, including using different sizes of ribbon for perspective.
I'll be back to the House now.
