I have chosen a background from my hand dyed fabrics. I have decided on a treatment for the "holes" and I have done the stitching, and attached the background and the urchin mask and now, am working on beading the almost finished piece. Some photos of the continuing process.....

|The background fabric. I was planning to dye some silk for this but liked this piece. The fillins for the holes have been free motion stitched.|
|Mask and background attached to each other and free motion stitched|
|Detail of the stitching. I really like the fly stitch along the ribs. Stroke of genius!|
|This should be called "the story so far" but I am actually well past this - no pictures yet!|
