This is a piece I made for my amazing sister for her birthday.
I painted the image on some muslin, then layered, and freemotion stitched it
I used a technique I learned from Susan Shie to create the edges
You wrap the fabric around the batting, then place the painted piece over it
I spent a few weeks hand stitching details while watching TV
Hand stitching has became the new obsession I am presently exploring.
Through an Illinois Art Education Association scholarship I am currently taking an embroidery class
at the Lillstreet Art Center. I am excited about the new possibilites my art will take.
My sister loved the piece
