Experimenting with framing
Deciding how to display each piece of work is always a challenge for me. Do I make it a hanging? Do I wrap it around a canvas? What kind of binding? What kind of backing, matting, and/or rod? I have discovered that Value Village (a thrift store) has many picture frames that can be recycled. This frame was in good condition and the perfect blue. I turned the matting over and covered it with silk habotai. The glass squashed the stitching and hid some of the beauty of the textures so probably would leave it out next time. Photographing without a reflection is also tricky.

Is this your new piece with the curved design you were talking about? The Blues are exquisite. Does it have a name?

No, this is a piece I started in San Diego. It took a while to finish! It is now on my gallery page.
