The project began in Nov. 2014, as a small piece of yellow silk noil. It was transformed using a soy wax resist and green, yellow, and orange/red dyes.
I'm inspired by the mountains that surround me.....so the idea was to hand embroider a mountain scene and frame it with hanging branches using two strands of floss. (Which took a lonnnnng time!) Though I had not envisioned any other design elements....as often happens....the piece tells you to keep going....and so I did.
