contrasts

Even as I rail about not being able to work larger I've been working on this little thing under the lamplight at night.

My office chair is surrounded by heaps of scraps that I've been rummaging through. The place is a mess!


I wanted to see it in natural light so I took it outside and draped it over my backdrop turkey platter ...that's a band of ice to the left ...brrrrr.

WoW! that embroidery work is awesome! Is the wide stitch a kinda couched tech? What did you do to get the raised effect?

K - those embroidered elements are cut from a tablecloth that I've hoarded for years. Google "Mountmellick embroidery" for images and be amazed.
