November Page




Yes, I know this is a little behind but I haven't posted a picture of it yet. This piece is inspired by my trip to Shanghai. What struck me as we were landing was all straight rows of land with water canals on either side. These were obviously farming communities. Another thing that I also noticed - everywhere - was the bright blue roofs. Even from our hotel in the middle of Shanghai, looking out the window there were bright blue roofs everwhere!

I love this piece - it is so peaceful, even though I don't think of Shanghai as being a peaceful place (even though I have no basis for thinking this) Your colors are great.

Great piece Cindy! And every time you look at it, you will be reminded of your flight/trip.
That's what I love about the BJP!

Really nice. I like the graphic feel of it too. Did you find out what those roofs were made of?

It's nice to have memories associated with the pieces we make. This one is beatiful and peaceful with great sparks of interest in it.

This one might be my favorite (although I love them all)!!!! What an absolutely drop-dead gorgeous design! Wouldn't have guessed at the inspiration for it, but love that it has that kind of meaning. You are certainly mastering bead embroidery!
