Pictured above is a 28"x22" piece that I started the same time as "Commune", but had put it aside with all other things awhile back....When I began making again, I'd decided to focus on finishing up the two larger pieces first. So now that those are done (and both have been placed in private collections!) I'm back to these other PiPs (pieces in progress).
It's been fun applying what I've been learning about combining these different techniques....I've been trying to keep good studio notes for myself to refer to in the future. We'll see how long I can keep that up, ha!
Anyway, the photo above shows the different colors I've chosen to use for the hand stitching. Three are cotton embroidery flosses, and the ball on the right is a 30/2 silk thread. The photos below show a couple stages of the process since I posted last month.
So this first photo is what the piece looks like right now, and then the gallery below shows some images taken during the process.
Anyway, Hope everyone has had a lovely summer, and thank you for reading!
