Herbal Convent Garden - Chatelaine FINISHED

It's been over 10 years since I started this piece and I now have it done. This piece is a really beauty and the hundreds of beads was really worth it. It took me over a week alone to put on all the beads. Below are the pictures of a corner urn, one of the gates (and these are all different), and the middle. The very middle is a cute little flower over one.These pictures look a bit yellow, actually the material is ecru. I am so glad it is done, now it's off to the framers.

Hope for Spring

I have a bay window facing the south and every winter my flowers are fooled into thinking it's spring. They put on a beautiful display of color. The plants that are blooming are three orchids,a christmas cactus and a clivia. Even though the temp. is -14 and the windchill is -30 I can still dream of spring.
