This is a detail of the piece showing the beading in the center and the red metallic thread that I machine couched along the gold kid leather.
The latest Fiberactions challenge was to pick 3 colors from foods you normally prepare. I use lots of bell peppers, so I chose green, red, and yellow. The gold kid leather is the leftovers of a piece I did too many years ago to think about. Why was I saving it? Maybe for this.
