Hi There Everyone!

At long last … a chance to post my latest Intarsia piece. Although the design was started way back in October of last year, the actual ‘hands-on’ work of it didn’t begin until the end of February. 170 hours later this wedding gift for our daughter is now complete.

These photos posted show only a few of the many steps taken to produce this particular style of Intarsia. For the entire journey from beginning to end … and lots of photo discription!! … you can read all about it through my blog.

Thank you so much for your wonderful and supportive comments throughout!

-- Elaine in Duncan

Elaine,

Your gift to your daughter, obviously from the heart, is just beautiful.

Elaine, I know that the pictures here hardly do this fantastic piece justice. I’m sure this will be a treasured family heirloom for generations to come.

Thanks for sharing with us!

I love this…so beautiful! The craftsmanship on it looks fantastic too! I have yet to try my hand at Intarsia, but when I see stuff like this project it makes me inspired to want to give it a try!

Elaine,

What a lovely heirloom! I hope your daughter and son-in-law will keep all your documentation with this masterpiece to hand on to the next generation.
