I designed this picture for the Hand Embroidery Network exhibition - Winter Wonderland. I was to register by a certain date & then forward the pictures at a later date, but as I didn't think I would get it done in time, I didn't register. As it happened, the date to send entries was extended, so I would have got it done in time after all. Never mind, I will put it in the 'Layers' exhibition.
Check out the other entries at HEN, there are some really good ones.
Picture - Paint, running stitch, french knots.
The window - painted heavyweight vilene, plastic, hand stitching.
Deep frame - the window is next to the glass & the snowscene at the back to give the effect of space, looking through a window.
I like the bird
