A new Sea page!
My page has arrived from Maya. It is so lovely, with such a lot of detail not immediately apparent.
There is a lot of hand stitching, with lots of beads simulating the movement of the sea. The stitches holding the fabric in place remind me of Kantha stitching. There are many pieces of foil, and silk making up the background, all adding to the texture.
The piece is edged in handworked blanket stitch. I wish my stitches could be so neat.
Adding to the detail, there are sequins added in to the back of the blanket stitch edging. What a lovely idea!
Here is Maya's letter, giving some idea of the techniques she has used.
Thanks so much Maya, I love my new page.
