This is the latest piece, and I can't decide which way is up! Please help and let me know if one appeals to you more than another.
I started with a small piece of fabric-about 8" by 8" -that I had painted sometime in the past. It is layered with cheesecloth on it.I tacked down a gold trim with running stitch then tacked the cheesecloth with random straight stitch. Next came the needlelace in green.The border was broken up with the gold insert to carry the gold trim idea to the edge. To tie it all together, I did a stem stitch in green Perle Cotton between the painted piece and the border.
My other request to you is a name. Anyone who has followed by blog knows that I'm not a word person and have a problem with names. I will send an ATC to whomever comes up with the name I use.
