Stitching sunshine

Still working on Monolith, there is now a silk sun in the sky.  The silk is part of an old hand-painted scarf which has made several suns since it retired as a garment.  I like to think that cloth is happy to be repurposed in this way.  I think of it as a kind of reincarnation, being born again.

    Hi Karen,I really like where this piece is going … it is so very delicate, yet has so much warmth. We visited some ruins in Mexico (quite a while ago) … and the sun played a huge part in the positioning of the stones. This reminds me of that very much!Very best wishes,Barbara

    Beautiful…the sun just "melts" into the fabric as if it was dyed into the main piece.:)

    Love the idea of reusing special pieces of fabric. And all the little stitches are fabulous.
