Machine embroidery

I've finished my pieces for "It's About Time" at The Old Bakery on 8th Gallery. Just have to finish the framing now and take them in tomorrow. The exhibition opens Sunday. I've photographed my work but won't post them yet.

Above: I was thinking of using this in one of my pieces and decided not to but I quite like the effect so will play with it a bit more.
the central motif was done on a bangle. I haven't cut the larger blue circle away from the ring yet so you can see how it's done. I used some selveges torn from printed silk fabric to wind around the frame.

It's beautiful. I'm looking forward to seeing what you'll do with it.

I have no idea how you made it, But I love it. I really like all the texture and the colors you used.

It's an interesting motif that I'll bet you do wonderful things with.
