We started with a couple of small exercises to get us warmed up. These were intended to be used for cards so we mounted them on card blanks.
The next exercise was a little larger, but we were still working quickly and loosely. I love the juxtaposition of the various fibres and textures combined with the minimal hand stitch.
This small square piece, framed in a 10" square frame, started out as a card, but I worked back into it a bit and decided to frame it.
There is still a little more work that will go into this piece before it's ready to be framed.
This piece is the start of a work in progress. I honestly don't know where this will take me, but I love the relatively fast, intuitive manner in which it's coming together. Time will tell where it goes and what it becomes ;)
