Making Progress

The Octopus Garden
8.5" x 8.5"

I posted a photo of this piece when I first started it.
If you want to refresh your memory, you can see it here

I started working on it again yesterday as a break from the "white" embroidery. It is not finished, but I am almost there. In case I didn't mention it before, the base of this piece is hand dyed cotton twill. I tore some of it into strips and wove them. A mono print on fabric was appliqued on top. Then it was all embroidery and more embroidery. The texture on each side is dyed scrim, couched down with buttonhole stitches. Dyed silk cord is mixed in there as well.
