I started with a monoprint on a loose weave cotton and added irregular pieces of painted cheesecloth. I had also painted lace and decided to use these motifs. The thread is embroidery floss and Perle cotton that I dyed or painted. The stem and chain stitches seemed to be what the flowers and leaves needed. I kept saving the special thread and decided that the reason I made them was to use them, and when they are gone, I can do more.
