my latest embroidery... can you tell I'm loving spring? Wink
I stretched this one on a canvas frame. I think I like that better than framing it behind glass. it can breathe this way. Smiley

Merwing, did you use any special techniques or did you stretch this like a normal paint canvas?  I'd like to do something similar but I'm worried about yanking out stitching in the stretching. 

Great job, I just love your style and everything you've posted, for this piece I just really like the colors and the composition, excellent work!

I like the lush, over-zealous growth of spring - excitement in vegetation - somehow this makes me think of how my front yard flower garden ends up lookin in August (extremely overgrown but without weeds - just crazy flowers) perhaps because they seem to think just like this in the spring...

okay it is wierd to talk about plants that way, I know... Smiley

That is a wonderful idea! Inspiring, for sure. Did you stretch it before or after? Could one stitch  directly on a canvas, just by itself? I'm not too familiar with such things.
