Did some Painting & Stitching this Weekend....

I painted and dyed some cheesecloth and linen this past week. I love working with cheesecloth -- it's airy properties make it fun to experiment with layering. Here are two 6 x 6 pieces I worked on this weekend using dyed cheesecloth, linen, wire mesh, hand embossed copper shim and some copper foil I had laying around. I free-motion stitched with copper and purple metallic thread and embellished them with Swavroski Crystal, amethyst stones and glass beads.







One of these I'm going to use as a giveaway and one is promised to someone already. I love working with 6x6.

Thank you, Cathie. I just received this BEAUTIFUL TREASURE! So many different techniques in this piece. Many are new to me. I cherish it. It will be framed and will hang in my office among my favorite art pieces.
