In a week of hot weather, it is fitting that "Shining Jewel" is completed. This hand dyed 10" x 7" piece began with shrinking for texture. Follow the link to learn more if this technique is new to you. The hand painted sun was cut out and appliqued on. Oil sticks add highlights throughout. Metallic yarn was hand couched, along a multitude of french knots and other hand embroidered additions to add more textural interest.
I have moved on to a larger piece to continue the ever satisfying hand work... to be revealed later.
The brushwork quilts that I showed to you last week are now available on my galleribba gallery:

Off to tend to my worms ( I am excited to have this worm compost bin!).... But before I go, linking to Off the Wall Fridays.
Have a lovely weekend!
