The transformation is remarkable.
Like a day spent at a salon, changing from plain Jane to elaborate embroidery princess, this shows what 24 days spent adding stitches can do.
I did add more fabric to the edges to cover the batting and add some more color and to frame it.
It has become thick and heavy with stitches creating texture and dimension where it once was flat and empty.
I had dug through my stash of fabrics and thought I was choosing elegant silks, burn-out velvet, linen and cottons that would be reminders of old fashioned crazy quilts and after the embellishments they have become something else all together.
Button hole stitches in circles...
A cacophony of threads and fabrics juxtaposed to make your eyes look and your fingers touch...
A few more stitches wait on my needle...
maybe...it might be almost finished.
