in pieces

Red silk for patchwork; another Memory Keeper, I think.  This one will be pieced over paper.  The silk is too unstable to piece without the paper support. 
 And below: hand-dyed silk organza.  The photograph really doesn’t do it justice.  Here I have pinned it to a backing of silk from a recycled skirt.  This will be another Memory Keeper, perhaps in the shape of an envelope or simple pocket shape.  This one could be a home for letters or photographs, perhaps.
