Jelly Bean Doors

This project is a combination of memories of Jelly Bean Row in St. John's NFLD and Google search Doors images.  And, of course, my stash of fabrics and embellishments.  Door frames are of twill tape and hem lace tape. Some doors are cotton, some are silk.  All were backed with thin fusible batting, and then enveloped with fusible batting and turned, then door panel details sewn.
And then the fun of adding embellishments from my bead collection. The black cat, deciding whether to go out or back in again in lower right door is the result of a search by my partner who swore he had a black cat from a bottle of Gato Negro, from many years ago.  He found it! and it too is now part of the picture.
