Hand dyed background, free motion and hand embroidery, beading, 23x20", a play on the phrase "she had beautiful bone structure". What if our bones *are* beautiful?

I'm thrilled to see this finally in the Sept/Oct 2009 Cloth Paper Scissors!!!!!!!

I love the way you finished it without actually binding it. Beautiful!

Thank you both! I am so proud of this piece---i've been famous for flitting about trying different things and ending up with a stack of unfinisheds, so the three months i spent on this really knock my own socks off :}

Oh what a beautiful piece. I love your color choices and placements and the texture is just out of this world.  Thanks so much for sharing such a lovely piece! Nancy

Thank you, sweeties :} If you could see this in person, it has quite soft a hand though it looks as if it would be stiff from all the stitching and beading.
