While searching for something else I came across this partially finished project started in 2004. (sorry, no ‘before’ photo) All the fabrics on the front were dyed with natural dyes; #5 black perle cotton was used for the stitching.
Back in 2004 I was involved in 18th century re-enacting and this is the perfect design for that period. But my work today is not like this. I finished it anyway, and then found out that it would be a gift for my daughter’s family that has a new house.
It’s always great to complete something and then move it along to it’s next home!
