So it's been with this low tide image, which I recently completed:
So far I can say the same of the next one. This one's an image of a foggy coast in Maine. It's handpainted and hand embroidered.
The third project, Grass Island, is named after a place on the CT shoreline in Guilford, CT, that looks something like this:
To show Grass Island's...uh, grassiness, I decided to use raw edge strip piecing. If you leave the edges raw instead of sealing them in a seam, then throw the result in the wash, what you get is raggedy edges. Here I have 3 strip pieced sections: beige on the right, green and beige on the middle piece, and more beige on the right hand section:
It's a work in progress. And when this one stumps me, I turn back to embroidering the grass on the foggy coast.
