This is also a little bit of a departure from my usual "thing." It is all hand stitching on linen (from an old pair of pants). I also went in and added some colored pencil. I had intended to mat it and frame it, but all the mats I tried seemed too stark against the linen.
So, I decided to put a fabric border around it. What I did was create the blue border as an entire separate piece. I quilted it and then attached the linen piece on top (like machine appliqué).
