Color Inspirations

I think I should explain that we had 2 photos to select from.  I selected 1 of the 2 most difficult pictures of the 15!  The combo of different greens is challenging for me to do. But, going out of my comfort zone was intentional. And, I think I included all the colors. I found the overdyed green Edmar thread in my stash that I loved for the wallpaper after I had stitched the top portion or else I probably would have placed the Edmar under the 2 rows of Rhodes. By the way, the Edmar was in a thread package I had purchased from Orna’s Etsy site! She is an excellent teacher and I learned a lot from her demonstrations of French Knots, Jessicas, and laying threads!

Here’s the final piece (photo on the left & stitched piece on the right).

Melita, THIS IS BEAUTIFUL! Your color selection, your handpicked threads, and lovely stitching hand: it is an amazing depiction of your chosen photo. You are a master. We bow to your talent.
(Thanks for inviting ro & me to attend. Orna is a magnificent teacher and her studio was over the top!)
