Wintering Complete

This piece is now finished. Silk is the most magical of fabrics to stitch on, and makes the smoothest, easiest thread to stitch with. The sound of needle and thread through silk is like the sound of something breathing.

Memories upon memories that conceal and then melt away, uncovering layers and the truth beneath.

    Kaye, this is truly beautiful, I am speechless. I adore working on silk, there is nothing better.I am concerned at how you discoverd that drawing pins rust???? I dread to think.

    Thank you, Karen – it was a joy to stitch. A gallery (a gallery!!) once used drawing pins to hang one of my large art quilts (despite my having sewn a full-width hanging sleeve to it). The gallery also served tea and coffee, etc, hence steam, hence… Now there are little brown spots in each corner. Thankfully, at least, the rust stains are only on the back of the quilt.
