|Autumn Retreat - Adapted from the works of R.L. Anderson|
I am quite keen to start it but there is a couple of projects already underway I want to finish first. What sold me on this one? As I said I loved the colour palette but the composition of is also satisfying. I love the central position of the vase with its dropped blooms and its cascading flowers which fills the majority of the frame. Your eye then picks up the fallen books and the candlestick hiding just behind the vase and travels up past the patterned wall paper to the shelf above and the plates and mug resting on it.What makes it interesting is the doily underneath the vase - while the vase is central in the frame - it is set off to one side on the doily making it a beautifully balanced composition.
I thought I would show you my ort container. It all started many months ago when I started using a plastic screw top container as an ort container. When my grand daughter could hold it she would turn it around looking at the colours and as she got older she would roll it across the floor. It is now ball shaped and quite soft to touch although it is quite dense as the threads have woven together. Now keep in mind this is the product of quite a few months of stitching not a monthly collection as yours is...
