Doorway to Springtime

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.

It's just beautiful Linda. It does look like springtime and I can't wait for it's arrival.
