Dublin Door by Anne Stradal – Finale

Lots of fun to stitch and over way too soon!

I used a soft gold #12 Kreinik braid to stitch the doorknob, mail slot, and plaque to the left of the door. I also used #12 Kreinik braid in black to stitch the wrought iron at the bottom of the piece. The stairs were stitched in two shades of a beige/gray floss using tent stitches and Gobelin stitches. That left the ivy in the top corner. It was stitched with an overdyed Needle Necessities floss – all French knots.

Lots in little details that make this piece a joy to stitch and look at. Thank you Anne for designing this little door – perfect for an Irish lass like myself (my grandfather was from County Mayo).

Don’t forget to check out Anne’s website to see all the beautiful canvases that she paints for your stitching pleasure!

  1. Jan, you did a terrific job on this piece! When you break down the stitching of a painted canvas into smaller areas, moving from one to another, it’s really quite easy, isn’t it? I’m so glad you enjoyed the process–that’s what it’s all about!
    P.S. I had great-great grandparents from County Mayo, too!

  2. ‘Tis lovely, to be sure.. and beautifully stitched. It’s a pleasure to stitch Anne’s canvases, because she designs and paints them so well.
