Porthole # 8


Porthole # 8 - Two of the fabrics on this were finds at second - hand stores. They must have been all the vogue at some time. They are silk and both have that "running colours" effect which I found intriguing. Though I've lightened this picture a bit...it's a bit difficult to see some of the darker metallic work. The white lace motif was cut from a larger piece which I found at the dollar store (and was used on several pieces). Have been playing more and more with chain stitch on these with different threads...as it "travels" nicely.
