Today I was free to play with the Embellisher again after too long a hiatus!
I have always been fascinated by clouds and have tried many times to capture them in fabric. This time I went for a sunrise, using some hand-dyed silk fibers and polyester sheers over a hand-dyed cotton background fabric.
The hills in the foreground are simply felt-appliqued.
This was a quick composition, taking not much more than an hour. I wanted to explore how the fabrics and fibers would behave. Next I will see what kind of detail I can add with some hand stitching...
This piece measures 10 1/2" X 11".
Meanwhile, the funky knitting project is growing....
I had forgotten how seductive knitting can be. It is hard to put down.
