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.
