That's the status of my latest home portrait
! Phew! This one asked for a LOT more hand stitching than I initially expected, thus the longer time frame. Well, that and life's interruptions too. But it is done and here for viewing and on it's way to it's owner very shortly. A few details to share first:
|loved this handwritten quote|
|it takes a special person to live with a legs statue in the garden|
|it was a lovely diversion to stitch so many flowers|
The owner of this home provided me with any wonderful fabrics and papers. In the end I am glad that I chose to use more fabrics than papers as it made the intense hand stitching much easier. She also provided me with a gazillion photos to choose from for the composition, winnowing them down was challenging. So many photos of the luscious gardens that I just had to include as many flowers as possible and thoroughly enjoyed stitching them.
