Well the arch swap is finally drawing to a close on Textile Challenges (My group - in the sidebar if you want to come and play). This is my ast arch and it is for a friend I have made through TC and this swap. Cathy has been through a hurricane this year so I am glad to send her this as she has had a rough ish year! She asked for red and yellow and Interesting view. Luckily on the back of a brida magazine I have been harvesting for a while was this amaing ic o a boat and a sunrise/set. I added a wash of red acrylic to it. The outer is appliqued fabric paper which is sheet music and peacock sequins.
I then added vermicelli cable stitch and more sheet music and flower sequins. It came out quite indian, which was a nice suprise, does your work do that, I didn't know I was going there!
