My third and final cover for the Covered in Stitches contest. It ended Monday, I finished this late Sunday. You didn't think I'd do a book cover contest and not do an Anne cover, did you? :) Green Gables and Anne are both on white linen. Green Gables I stitched through both the white and blue and you can see a bit of the white around the edges. Anne I appiqued on in entirely; a tiresome process, but sooo worth it in the end. I think she looks pretty fabulous. I used the text from the movie and just back-stitched it.
The illustration from the Anne of Green Gables Treasury alongside my piece. :)
A close up of Anne.
Green Gables. You can see the white around the edges. Ignore the blue, I took the photos before I cleaned it. The trees and bushes are felt with french knot flowers. The tree trunks are just sort of satin stitched, but not in a smooth way so that they'd look more tree like. The roof threads are woven through each other. The grass by the house is the raw edge of the green fabric. :)
