So I decided that I would embroider some of those place names on the solid turquoise section of the piece after embroidering some tone on tone on the same sections. The finished piece will be 12" x 12" and I have finished the middle section which is the landscape and I have done some embroidery on the top and bottom sections.
|middle section is 4" x 11"|
|It will be surrounded by tone on tone embroidery|
Last year I submitted an appliqued and embroidered piece called "Small Wonders of the Forest" inspired by photos of a grouping of tiny orange mushrooms. It is still part of the colour challenge travelling exhibition soon to be joined by this year's colour challenge pieces.
I recently started a new mushroom piece inspired by another photo of those same group of mushrooms. It is mostly embroidery on a photo transfer. The positioning of this group of mushrooms reminded me of a conversation taking place between two groups (maybe I should call it "The Conversation"?). It is still a work in progress with lots of hand stitching needed on the background. I am thinking of adding an orange red border and finishing with a stretched canvas. I have the perfect piece of fabric that I dyed in a class awhile back.)
I finally got some of my new landscape necklaces up on ETSY When I can find some time I would like to work on fabric beaded necklaces as well. Right now we are busy with publicity for our annual spring show in April. More on that later.....
