It's Arrived!


~
Look what arrived this afternoon! Maggie Grey had a draw for her 200th post and amazingly I was the lucky winner! I don't know whether my photograph will show the detail fully but there is so much to look at in this beautiful work. You may not be able to see it but Maggie has used tiny, tiny stitches to add texture. The colours are gorgeous as you might expect from Maggie. I love the turquoise and golds and the dashes of red. The arch is metal and has so much detail to it with paper bonded to metal and gold embellishment. I'm sure Maggie has used Lumiere paints to achieve the beautiful lustre of the colours. I took the Shrine Door out into my conservatory to photograph it and it came alive with the sun shining on it so I hope to find somewhere to hang it where it will get good light. Thank you Maggie for this beautiful work, I am delighted to have it in my home. :o))

Hi Julie. What a fantastic win. Lucky you. I love your doily prints what wonderful use of colour. Sorry I haven't stopped by for a while, I've been a little busy. Its been so nice to catch up with your creations. PS, Hope the suite is losing its nasty smell and yes I think it is the scotchguard we had an unsual odour when we purchased our last suite and it had a scotchguard protection. The good news is it did wear off. xx
