New Work

I finished this piece last month and have been trying to come up with a title for it.  I think I have something, but will take suggestions.

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).

It looks great, the border is perfect.
