Summer is starting to wind down and the colors in my yard are starting to fade. These two newest works in my "Patched Work:Rimmed in Red" series seem to reflect a bit of this late summer color pallet...
This first one revisits the idea of several patched layers...
It features several vintage fabrics, including the vintage linen base and that cute little flower print, as well as a couple of lovely shot cottons.
Lot's of fun embroidered elements on this one!
This second piece is very small, a mere 1.75" x 2.5".
Like previous pieces, it's also made from vintage linens and shot cottons, and along with the hand stitched touches, this one also has a cute little vintage mother-of pearl button.
