Playing With Threads

A Nest of Inspiring Threads

My Blue and Green Stitchery Finished with the Embellishment of Yarns, Wooden Beads, and Classic Embroidered Stitches-
I can see a Small White stockinged Foot in a Green Silk Shoe walking through a Garden of Flowers and Grass

I decided to try the Embroidered detail on an actual painting - really like the effect - many more could be added-!
Such as these pictured above that I've been painting for her hat and dress

Threads and Beads like these put me in mind of Rooms in India - a Country that is not afraid of a little Color-!
Glossy White Chairs & Trim set off a Lime Green wall treatment based on traditional Indian pigments

A Living room in an Apartment in Jaipur - housed within an 1880 Mansion
More rooms in the same dwelling
