Queen Anne's Lace: Faded Memories
I'm not sure if I'm finished with this piece or now, notice the tattered edge on the right side? I'm not exactly happy with it at the moment and am thinking of some additional layering.
If you look close enough you will see that there is additional stitching beneath the hot pink silk organza net, first layer is a silk damask type fabric I dyed with cochineal and then machine stitched to a layer of timtex.
I stitched a grid of sorts and some Queen Anne's Lace onto the first layer using a variegated pink rayon thread.
The initial audition. The piece to the left consists of cochineal dyed silk organza atop a layer of indigo dyed silk damask fabric which may or may not be finished tonight.
