Lily Maiden
by Teresa Wentzler

This was the first (and so far only) TW project that I completed. It's hard to get photos with the glass glare, but I tried my best.

As you can see, I had the project triple matted with a special cut top mat. I had it done at The Rag Shop and was really pleased with how the framing turned out!

You really can't tell by the photos, but there is translucent blending filament used, especially in her wings. She is sparkly and really lovely. Click photo for detail.



I took a shot of border and my signature (KIM 94) to show more detail. There is also blending filament used on the Smyrna Crosses.

This may have been my first linen project. I had started (and abandoned) "Rapunzel" before this project on aida and was frustrated poking through the cloth, so I learned to stitch on linen mainly to stitch TW's designs.

I entered it and won a ribbon in my LNS show. Another older, but proud finish.

Yes, I am a TW pattern collector. Time for a giveaway . . .

Create Beauty,
Kim
