July Page for Carmen

Since I know that Carmen has received my page I made for her for July, I thought I'd post photos. This is done with machine embroidery (Carol Shinn style) and is based on a photo of the inside of Nunney Castle. I found the photo on the Internet and loved the play of shadows and light.

The back is pretty boring, just black felt but I needed something that wouldn't fray. The technique I used creates it's own edges and I didn't want to cover them up.

Here's a close up. I used tons of thread for this! I hope you like it Carmen.
