Night Walked Down
This design was inspired by our black cat, who loves to stalk through her garden "kingdom" in the evenings. I tried to capture the feeling of a mysterious, lush garden in opulent colors, surrounded by a deep azure sky. Stitch count is 256 wide x 151 high. The model is stitched on 40 count "Shrinking Violet" linen from www.kittenstitcher.com. This linen has a soft purple/gray tone and subtle nuances. It's difficult to photograph, but very lovely. The text is an exerpt from the poem "A Memory" by Frederick L. Knowles. This is available through your local needlework shop or online store.
