Stitching on hand dyed fabric
Work in progress, the finish piece will be approximately 20" wide, 27" long

For a small change of pace, I pieced some hand-dyed fabric together and decided to stitch on it. After I composed the colored ground, stitching ensued...

The cotton fabric was dyed by my friend, Diana Angus, who is a generous soul and lovely woman, let me borrow her stash when I went to Crow barn in April this year.

I love connections. I met Diana at the same time I met India Flint here. Both Diana and I as well as many others (I'm sure!) want India to visit Ohio. Perhaps she will one day.

BTW (slightly incongruous to this post)...India's new book, Second Skin, will be released on July 1, 2011. You may want to pre-order a copy.
