It’s back…

What’s back, you may ask.  Well, thank you for asking.  ‘Color Cubes’ by Laura Perin as interpreted by me is now framed.  I LOVE how it turned out. So with many thanks to Ms. Perin and my framer, Ms. Cindy, may I present  Color Cubes (most appropriately named, don’t you think?):

The colors are, as always, a bit washed out in the photos, but the piece was stitched in rich combination of navy, burgundy and dark green with a bit of gold and gold metallic thrown in for good measure. (I changed the overdye to one that was just a bit darker with burgundy in it rather than pinkish tones).  There are also beads, which create sparkle and textural interest.  I choose to double mat it with a light gold metallic inner mat and a navy suede outer mat. The mat cut was a challenge (or at least that’s what Cindy tells me :-), but it came out just the way I’d envisioned it. The frame is a simple silvery gold with small swirls for texture. What can I say?  I really, really love the combination.

This was a fun stitch and I would HIGHLY recommend any of Laura’s creations. They instructions are superb and her color sense is wonderful.

I am stitching a bit amidst a busy schedule and I will update you sometime soon on progress made on my current WIP’s. Right now, my mom is here for a month and we are catching up and having a wonderful visit. I just wish I could get her to pick up a needle. 🙂 (Hi mom!)

Hope everyone out there is having a wonderful, stitchy weekend.

Blessings,
