Several years ago I saw this canvas finished while attending a retreat in Carmel CA. Loving all thing French, I Instantly "fell in love" big time! I asked the fabulously talented Carolyn Hedge Baird to write a stitch guide for me and to select from her ribbonry the borders. After the stitching, the rest was up to Barbara for putting it all together. Voila! My perfect dream of Provence.
