Yes, I'm still here.....thank you to the many followers who emailed me. Things have been a bit crazy in our household but all will be well. Our hearts go out to all those suffering the aftermath of the hurricanes. Realizing what those folks are facing, certainly puts one's little bumps in the road in perspective.
Okay....let's talk fabric! The purple discharge motifs I blogged about recently are still on my design wall and I'm NO closer to a design solution. So, in the meantime, another one of my rust-dyed vintage linens got my attention.
The embroidery design was kept quite simple to avoid over-powering the lovely lacey motifs. It was mounted on mottled hand-dyed silk noil.
