In the meantime, I thought I'd show you some of my canvas work. These designs have been worked in Perle 5, hand dyed silks, hand dyed ribbons, metallics, rayons and beads. They each measure 13" x 13" framed.

These were all designed by Jennifer Griffin and sold through Nancy's Embroidery in Wellington, New Zealand. I don't think they are available any longer, but Nancy's do have some similar canvas work patterns available here.
I love these designs. As usual, I've changed them up a bit and chosen my own colour palettes. In some cases I've painted the canvas myself too, because we can now only get white canvas in New Zealand and that wouldn't work for me. This is the one in my blog header photo:
I added an extra border onto this one to make it the same size as the other two. All three hang side by side in our hall way and I love the colour they add to our 'off white' walls.
Later in the week I'll show you another two I've made which were designed by Laura J Perin.
