This beautiful creation is a work-in-progress by another Seattle-ite, Shelly Sazama. The center is full of many different golden scraps, surrounded by Jude's moons and stars. Her variety of stitches, textures, and couching is really wonderful. I especially love her spot of french knots, just a little below right of center. I'm sorry my photo doesn't do the fabrics or her stitching justice.
We had a lovely meeting yesterday. It's been a long time since I've had someone to stitch with, and being able to share stories and cloth thoughts in person . . . such a treat!
Thank you for reaching out Shelly, I'm looking forward to next time. ox
