I have had a love affair with this canvas for many years. Amanda Lawford paints the most magnificent canvases.
When Amanda came for a visit last year, somehow we ended up with the 30 inch version of this canvas. WAY too big. So, when the 20 inch canvas was still there at Christmas, I decided I’d been a good girl this year and deserved a present.
The robe is a lot of area to cover. So, I laid a long diagonal stitch with Sparkle braid and couched it down with Soie d’Alger.
Ignore the stitch on the robe here. I still have to rip that out. I don’t always get it right the first time. I’m trying my hand at needle painting. Always gotta try something new.
