finishing up...

I am almost done finishing up projects that have been languishing around my studio. This is Аленький Цветочек/Alenkii Tzvetochek/Crimson Little Flower 7. Seven is a good number to end a series on I think, except that I am not sure if I am ready to end this series yet. Maybe it's a pause in this series. So it is the latest, but maybe not the last in my Crimson Little Flower series. It is silk chiffon, silk organza painted with Neocolor® Watersoluble crayons and Shiva Paintstiks®, free-hand machine embroidered with silk and rayon threads, hand stitched and stretched over wood bars wrapped with red raw silk.

All this lovely stitching. I am going to take a stitching class this spring and hopefully enjoy this level of detail meditation!

Your stitching is delicately balanced with the fabrics! Also, great photography -- it's had to do fiber well, isn't it?

I really like how you use both hand and machine stitching. I think your method of mounting your work is a great way to showcase it.
