50th Anniversay Picture was started in January of 2022. It was framed and ready to be presented to the lucky couple by April 29th.  Their Anniversary, being in the middle of May!  Lots of planning went into this picture.  Creating an original design from various items in life is a fun challenge.  Their picture now has a special location in the couple's living room.


Snow Angels is inspired by combining 3 Christmas Card themes together.   One of the cards has two little girls, pulling a sleigh with presents on it.   Another card, is a cabin in the background.  And in the foreground of the picture, taken from another card, we can see that Snow Angels have been made by these two little angels.

 

The picture is designed, dedicated and given to my  dear friend who introduced me to the wonderful world of Bunka Embroidery.


Almost one year since the Blog was posted.   Have completed two pictures in that time-frame. 

 

Peacocks was a Kit that I always wanted to stitch.  Now it is beautifully framed to enhance the colours in peacocks feathers, and is displayed in the living room.

 

Northern Lights is an original that was inspired by a Christmas Card.

All was done free hand, and was a joy to watch the colours blend, and have the picture take on a life of its own.  The shades of blue mats and frame sure make the picture stand out!

 

Do take a look at these pictures in the website.   The framing is very flattering to both works of art.


A lot of events took place from March 2020 to now, October 2020.

Staying home give one time to reflect.  It also gives us time to work on the projects that inspire us with more focus.   From March to June, "Autumn in Japan" was carefully stitched.  Amazing framers, who I used for many years, retired during Covid-19.  Once the picture was complete, new framers were chosen with excellent results.  Do take a look at "Stone Bridge" and "Autumn in Japan".  


The Stone Bridge is progressing.   Working on the Tree Trunks.  Then the leaves and the Bridge will be stitched.


The current picture that is being stitched is called Stone Bridge.

Aim is to have it completed before the end of this year.  This picture has many shades of green.  Some greens as so close in shades and in numbers that some definition in darker greens in 1/4 pull may be need to be added to give more dimension to the beautiful picture.  Taking time to stitch, but know that the end result will be well worth the extra time!


As of July 31st, the Lavender Scenes are framed to enhance both pictures.  Labour of love is totally complete now.   Just take a look at the Shades of Purple listing and be amazed!


Completing a project takes more time than planned.  The City Scene is nearly finished.   What to the add to the picture, and still have it balanced is pleasurable and challenging.  One of the neat features that was added to the picture was a man with a pack pack!   Will have pictures to add once the City Scene is to my satisfaction.
