I worked all day today on stitching my caricatures that I blogged about on the Felting and Fiber Studio. I thought it would only take me about 4 hours but I kept getting phone calls and it took me all day. Sigh. So I thought I’d show you this finished piece that I am donating to an auction.
It is called The Muses of Produce and is a diptych. I made this ages ago but I finally framed it on black canvas.
It is from fabric that I made with my local group several years ago. We printed with veggies and fruit. The “muses” were printed with a half of a walnut or a pecan, I can’t remember which. But they looked like little angels to me.
I hand stitched with green and black thread. The patterns were made with apples, pomegranates, cabbage, peppers and onions.
There’s lots of tiny seed stitches and the outlines are done with stem stitch. These are going to be sent off to an auction soon. I wonder if they will sell or not?
Here’s a sneak peak of the stitching that I did today. I will blog about the entire piece on The Felting and Fiber Studio on Halloween. Hope it won’t be too scary for you 🙂
