Unbroken Circle has been sewn to a backing of hand-dyed linen.. It's a bit less soft than it might be, but I like the colour, and the texture is nice. I've done quite a lot of hand-stitch, mostly rather simple running-stitches, and I think this one is almost done
Mood Indigo has its Red Spots, and a purplish backing (which doesn't quite work on screen, as its a shot fabric. I'm going to add more smaller spots and red stitch
And this is Weaving Rust, with stitch in indigo-dyed cotton, plain cotton, and hand-dyed silk thread.. I think this one is almost done, too.. Better in life than on screen, I think..
I haven't decided what to do with these yet - my default is always the art piece for the wall, but I have been making nice books this week. I may add these to other pieces and expand them further.. I'm amazed at how long some of these have taken to stitch, which makes them uneconomic for sale..
