Porthole # 32


This is another featuring a Free Form piece. The copper tone picks up the shade of the rust patch, on which I added a feather stitch vine and bullion leaves in Pearl Crown; the florettes are Colonial knots in Kreinik Ruby #4.

To the left of that I did some stacked & staggered Chevrons enhanced with Cast-on scallops in deep cranberry Soie Perlee.

The lace butterfly I bought years ago at the Creative Sewing & Needlework show; added some copper beads to the wings & sat it in the middle of an SRE vine made of Bullion Tip Lazy Daisy leaves and Colonial knot buds in deep purple. (I don't think the scan does this one justice...looks much better close up!)
