The Four Seasons

Jenny told me that since I was new to blogging I could post old projects that I hadn't previously posted.
I had started this project about 25 years ago. I remember working on the cross stitch when the kids were taking swimming lessons. About 8 years ago, I finally completed it. Each of the four season scenes is cross stitched then the landscape is pieced fabric.
Ang, the family artist, once told me this was the nicest project I had made. I think I agree.

Well Jenny is certainly right. And so is Ang. I've never seen anything like this. The texture and combination of cross stitch and fabric is wonderful. I love it. It is very unique and quite stunning. Fantastic really.
