More Finishes

 So this little cutie someone got lost and its threads got separated from the canvas. I found this sometime after we returned from my first trip to London back in 2010. There's more than one type of white thread stitched on this. And two different dye lots of one of them. All because I didn't write anything done. And seriously how the threads were no longer in the box with the canvas is beyond me. Anyway. It's off being made into a pillow and when it comes back to me, I will smile at it every day. Because I like the ambiguity of what the gap is. (I know what it is. But it could refer to so many things.)

And I feel safe posting this here even though it's a gift. A little stumpwork piece designed by Nancy Williams. I don't know how many years ago I took this class. I also have the white berries on blue silk version which has been stitched for years. When I find it again, I'll do the finishing and put it on my tree.

The ornament is stunning. I look forward to seeing Mind the Gap in pillow form.
