working on roses again….
I have been stitching the edges of this print with various colors of
thread to highlight the roses.
a different view….
This is a piece called “ascension”
Websters dictionary: 1.rising or increasing to higher levels, values or degrees.
2. rising upward…
This is one of my older pieces that I started and never finished…
As you can see I have all of the edges to embroider.
I am working on a hoop because it is a little larger than most pieces.
Generally, I work free hand.
If you look closely on the right wing; there is a lot of fraying because I used
Osnaburg fabric. I love the texture of it. The nubbyness but, it is not great for the fraying
as it is a “cheap” fabric that does not hold up that well. I remember that is all I had at
the time and I was trying to make do and use what I had. As I was stitching the edges
I thought someday the wings on this
will surely need new fabric layered over them.
Perhaps by then the cloth will have many stories to tell….
