an intriquing piece of silk.
I have been working on it slowly, adding hours of hand stitch as I showed in this previous post. I'm still not exactly sure where this piece is taking me, but I knew that the next step was to add some free motion quilting of these fun little 'pebbles' to fill in the areas that didn't have any dye on them, and therefore didn't get hand stitched.
I love how the machine work flattens the areas between the hand stitch, allowing the hand stitched areas to come to the forefront.
With this step done, I now continue to look at the piece waiting for it to give me some idea of what is to come next...
