I finished this piece today, an applique landscape, using all hand painted fabrics. Instead of my usual zig-zag stitch around each element, I used heavyweight brown top stitch thread in a straight stitch as an outline. There is also a bit of hand embroidery in the flowers among the rocks in the lower portion.
This piece was a pleasure to make. I love trees, beautiful skies and landscapes in general, and it was fun to use fabrics I had painted myself!
