Defining Winter

Defining Winter

The first in this seasonal series which describes, in words and images, various ideas and details that come to mind when I think about winter. The primary design is stitched on silk gauze with colorful blocks and words on a tonal background of subtle details and the months from the calendar. An additional piece using the large letter blocks is finished as a pretty cushion.
