cathie's piece is finished!


Cathie's piece is finished! Tomorrow I will post a photo of it hanging on the wall. I wrapped the piece around canvas-wrapped stretcher bars. Attaching the three fused glass clouds was a breeze this time, as I asked my husband to hold them as I tied them on with fishing line.

Here are some close ups of the clouds:







I am pleased with the way the perle cotton stitching shows up -- enough to give the piece some texture, but not enough to take away from the "reading" of the image itself. If you click on the first image, you can see the stitching better!

I thought this is one of the most original works I've seen lately. I wished I was your friend.
