I recalled that many years ago I had made an embroidered picture frame for some friends who were celebrating their 25th anniversary. That piece was a white and silver interpretation of other flower designs I had created some 20 years ago. I resurrected that design idea and drew my colors from Maura & Marc’s invitation. I collected some interesting threads in a variety of textures, mostly concentrating on pale blues, but interspersing some whites and even some ecrus. I borrowed some techniques from Brazilian embroidery, but mainly relied on standard embroidery stitches and even a canvaswork stitch. All is light and airy…and round.
The frame has tiny needlewoven bars that hold the invitation in place; however the invitation is easily removed and may be replaced by a photo, as the young couple prefers.
