Add a little sunshine on an otherwise gray day

It's trying to be sunny outside, but we aren't quite there.  I need to take photos but I guess I have to wait.

So instead, in my attempt to make all things bright and sunny I present PEACE

PEACE is part of a series of canvases I designed and introduced last June.  These are just simply happy canvases.  No bigger purpose. There is PEACE, LOVE and WOW. They all come in a variety of sizes and canvas meshes.  Finish them as is or use them to embellish a tote or a jacket.

You can see them here and here.

In my world, there's never enough color and today is the perfect gray example of that. (Oh wait, a hint of sun is outside my window. Maybe blogging all this color is helping.)

Wendy Harwood of Aristeia stitched this version of PEACE and wrote a fun stitchguide for it.  Just about all the threads are used as-is on 13ct. How's that for a plus on a large canvas. No plying needed.

I followed her guide.  Made a few modifications, not many, added a little more bling and stitched my version of PEACE.  I'm just delighted with it.  It makes me smile, tons of color and it works in every room of my house.  Or at least it will when I bring it home. 

Vicky DeAngelis stitched LOVE for me in the small size.  You can read about it here. Finished size is only 4 x 8 but it packs plenty of bling

Hope this adds a little sunshine to your day.

Turquoise trim on lime green with Peace--what could be happier?! Those will be my finishing colors too...if I ever finish :)
