This piece was begun back in early June when I tried a new stabilizing process for the applique motifs, you can read about it here.
So, now it's finished. It feels more tropical than our local scenery but believe it or not, we have quite a bit of bamboo here in the mountains.
We also have a good number Florida folks that the locals dub 'half-backs'. It's the reverse of the term 'snow birds'. Most have retired in Florida from the East but escape the summer heat here in the mountains.
