Here is today's new piece. I've been wanting to play with this piece of painted fabric for a while, but just couldn't come up with something to do with it. It's got a very complex design with lots of color. So, I decided to go really simple with it. I ripped the long rectangle and set it on a blue background which was set on red violet painted batting. Then I stitched it and the background using wavy lines in yellow green thread. Then I added the small painted squares with the dark red violet squares behind them. These were top stitched inside the edge of the painted squares and done.
I like the piece, but I'm a bit miffed that the square with the blackest background and full pink swirl is crooked. I may have to do the nastiest deed on earth.... pick out the stitches, straighten it out and re-stitch it. We'll see.
Though it's simple, I like the movement and rhythm that it has and the coloration is cool yet dramatic.
That's it till tomorrow,
