NEW! Place des Vosges and Amber Ocean Lights!
"It is quite some time [ago] that I stumbled upon the very intricate woodworking and ornate patterning of old Russian Windows. Not in the cities though, but on farmland. Old wooden houses, adorned with sawed "lace" of wood - painted with bright colors (former) , now weathered to picturesque shades and lovely worn looks. Lacey curtains inside - here and there a cat face peeking through - pots with flowers inside and out.
I was immediately inspired - and here you see the first of a series, of at least four designs. I made a pattered ornate frame, filled with special stitches and beads, which was influenced by traditional Russian needlework patterns."
