Winter Daybreak

Designed in the Assisi technique of only stitching the background, all stitches are cross stitch. Pearl embellishments are also added with a simple cross stitch. One glorious thing about short winter days is the fact it is easier to catch a sunrise. This design was inspired by those icy cold mornings when it is clear and the hoar frost covers the panes and just before the sun begins to break over the mountains, the sky is suffused with soft shades of pearl grey, pink and lavender.

Vintage motifs reimagined and laid over those hues express how such a winter's daybreak looks from my window.
