Background Information

This took me a long time! I tried it on black and it was fine , but not cool. So, I tried hand dyes and chose this one. I see leaves and organic shapes so I thought it "said something". It is now fused in place and a few bits of the red painted Reemay to suggest more leaves . Now- I start to stitch, and stitch --- and STITCH! I am linking it to the needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com

  6. It keeps the eye looking for familiar shapes in amoungst the chaos! Lovely effects of curling leaves is what I seem to see, but also a kind of space oddity....

  7. So, all the red that we see is Reemay? I've not heard of it before reading your blog. It's a lovely piece!

  8. Fabulous colors! And the intricate cut-work on the Reemay is incredible! I hadn't heard of Reemay before, but looked at your older posts - it sounds interesting.
