Workshop by Mail, Elusive Dreams by Carolyn Mitchell
submitted by Kathy Larsen, Chair

Elusive Dreams have a soft, dreamlike appearance stitched on #18 mono canvas in French Blue. It explores the delightful, dimensional Jean Hilton stitches such as Amadeus Dagger and Star, Crescent, Double Fan Doubled, and Walneto Cloverleaf plus more. Some of my favorite stitches were added such as eyelets, trellis work, Rococo, and many waffle stitch variations. Over thirty stitches create this design, which is encrusted with beads and crystals. Worked using Soie Cristale, Impressions, Snow, Kreinik #12 Braid, Neon Rays, and Pearl Cotton.

This piece is a companion to Tranquil Dream, taught at Reno, NV in 2004.

 Design Size:  13.75” x 13.75” on #18 count mono canvas.

Carolyn Mitchell was a full-time shop owner in Canada for twenty years and has been a designer and teacher of embroidery for over 35 years. She holds a NSCAE teaching certificate and was EAC Education chair (1990-1994). She has been an EAC counselor and author since 1987. She is a national and international teacher. Her exploration of fibers, colors, and textures are evident in her designs for Canvaswork, Blackwork and Hardanger as she blends different forms of stitchery on canvas. She enjoys watching and encouraging her students to cultivate their knowledge and expansion in their embroidery field.
