My first Windows page has actually arrived through all of the ice and snow!! I absolutely love it Cobi!!! I wish that you all could see the incredible embroidery details, in the amazing leaves especailly! I tried to take closs up shot to show you , I hope that you can make them out. (I think that if you right click on the photos, they will enlarge in a new screen!)
DId you see the darling little bluebird and nest perched on top of the window?? PERFECT!! And she included some of my favortie lace- hand done tatting- reminds me of my Swedish Grnadmother who did lots of bobbin lace. Seems to me that Cobi did some research. Have you been reading my blog, by chance?? :)
The background that Cobi used does not show up well in the photos, it is a very subtle brick work pattern. She did wonderful silk ribbon emb for the central garden and then the clibing vines a re a wonderful mix of hand painted lace motifs and intricate embroidered leaves. How did you know , Cobi, that I am passionate about flowers and gardening?????
I simply adore this piece and I so appreciate all of the effort and thought and time that you put into it!!! It was soooo worth the wait!!!
Big Apprecaitive Hugs!!!!
