Finally a new post!  I had gotten bogged down with life.  Another of the small pieces that is really wonderful for using scraps.  I used hand marbled and hand dyed fabric for the flowers and leaves.   I’m still enamored with my rust printed fabric used for the fence. I used french knots made with embroidery […]
