The background is a hand painted old linen napkin. Now that I think about it, this was really the beginning of my hand stitching direction I seem to be mostly sticking with these days. This piece is entirely hand stitched.
"The Fire Within" 14"X16"
This second piece also uses a bit of heat distressed painted tyvek, and various fabric bits and couched fibers and beads. Again, entirely hand stitched.
"Layers" 13"X13"(Sold!)This piece has lots of couched strips of dyed scrim and plenty of beads and bits of stone and shell stitched down. Hand embroidery holds the layers together.
That is my little gallery of fiber arts in the prime showcase area in my house for now. I like to rotate things, usually I put my most recently finished pieces there if they fit. I hope you enjoyed this viewing of some of my older pieces. They are all for sale if anyone is interested.
I'm concerned for all of you who have been hit by the big storm that is passing through. I pray that you are all safe and waiting out the storm until things can get back to normal. You all take care and be well.
