Green, Green, Green

I was so excited to get cast in a community play. It has been far to long since I have been able to indulge in my passion to perform. I was equally as excited when the director asked us to acquire or make objects that could be sold after the play in order to raise support for Women's Space, a local shelter for victims of domestic violence.

I thought it would be really fun to create some items that had lines from the songs or the play. I was given a solo about a girl who wished she had lived in a mansion with white pillars. I wanted to stitch a mansion with some of the words from my solo. I started my search on the web, but just wasn't finding anything that would fit. I stumbled upon a picture of the Herlong Mansion Historic Inn in Florida.

This is my ORIGINAL design inspired on the Herlong Mansion. I have to say that I was very excited as I have never before created my own design. I have always relied on someone else's pattern.
