Working on a Carolyn Mitchell design

Well, I am finally settled in at home again after a long summer working at the campground!  I have actual been home about a month now and it has taken this long for me to get used to being home again, catching up on some things and getting back to stitching again.  It feels very good to be home!
So here is what I'm working on...

This is a canvaswork project called "First Snow", designed by Carolyn Mitchell.  It is a workshop on Virtual Threads, the online chapter of The Embroiderers' Association of Canada, and the chapter paid for the teaching fees from the proceeds of a little silent auction we had at Seminar in 2014.  So, all we members of Virtual Threads needed to do for the workshop was to buy the supplies - who could resist?  
Carolyn is teachine this as a mystery project and what you see here is the first of three lessons completed.  

I am really enjoying this - canvaswork is so relaxing!  I have chosen to do this in silk threads instead of the cotton thread alternative and so far they haven't been giving me any trouble.  There will be pearls added to this section at the end so I am looking forward to seeing what that adds to the look of it.  On to lesson 2!
