Shot Cotton Deliciousness....

Not sure what this is yet - other than a mosaic of frayed edge shot cottons on a linen ground.   What is shot cotton?  It's fabric that is woven with two different colored threads - one for the warp and one for the weft, creating beautiful movement when the light hits it and when the edges are frayed.  I adore frayed edges and the organic feel they give to textiles.

Next, some type of hand stitching will be applied  to the squares and then perhaps "pebble" machine stitching in the negative white space.  Still pondering and enjoying the process

Any ideas??
